The Places

Art & Design in Public Places

The Society provides executive directorship for The Art & Design in Public Places Program. The Places was launched in 1999 as a community based, multi-partner initiative designed to help revitalize Edmonton's downtown through placement of publicly funded works of art.  To date, 69 temporary and permanent public works of art have been developed through local, provincial and national calls to enter.
