Public Art Guidelines for Developers

The Public Art Guidelines for Developers is intended to assist the Developer through the process of commissioning an artist, meeting industry best practice and getting the best value from the Developer’s contribution.

These Guidelines should be read in conjunction with the Georges River Council Public Art Policy, which outlines Georges River Council’s vision for creating a built environment that has vibrancy, originality, creativity and sense of local character.

If you have any questions about the Public Art Guidelines for Developers, please email the Hurstville Museum & Gallery team.
