Public Art

Public art is visual art that exists in the public realm. It includes all works that are commissioned, purchased by, or donated to the City to be located in publicly accessible spaces.  ​

In October 2012, City Council approved its first Public Art Policy, created by a committee of arts experts from Barrie and surrounding area. The policy established a Barrie Public Art Committee (BPAC) that works to raise the profile of public art and create a vibrant, animated city full of public art for all to enjoy.

The Barrie Public Art Guide features works in public spaces across Barrie, along with maps detailing their locations. Copies are available for pickup at City Hall and tourism outlets. Below are projects that have involved BPAC.

As part of the Community Improvements Projects completed during the 2018-2022 term of Council, there were also five public art projects completed: 

  • ​the east end (puzzled)
  • Downtown Anti-harassment Campaign
  • About Time
  • Native Species Illustrations
  • Lampman Lane Park Mural
