City Owned Public Art
The City of Vaughan is developing the administrative framework to support building and profiling a dynamic corporate collection of civic art installed in the public realm. As the implementation of the City Wide Public Art Program evolves, the inventory of City-owned public art acquisitions will be featured on this page.
Take a virtual tour of the City’s corporate art collection
In 2007, the City of Vaughan began building a corporate art collection destined to animate key public areas of Vaughan City Hall, Vaughan Public Libraries and civic partnership venues. Currently, 78 permanent acquisitions are housed in the City’s growing Art Integration Collection. The curatorial vision and collection mandate is guided by a strong commitment to recognize, support and profile artistic excellence; encourage interactive, accessible engagement between artists and public audiences; embrace equality and diversity; foster art appreciation and integrate art into the fabric of everyday experiences. Artists represented in this Collection range from emerging to established in their career paths, working mainly from studios based in Vaughan and the Greater Toronto Area.
View the City of Vaughan’s Art Integration Collection virtually in our online art gallery featuring works by local, regional and GTA-based artists. The online gallery can be viewed on Flickr and does not require a personal account.
