Public art is an integral component of a vital, livable and healthy Calgary. There are a number of public art projects currently underway throughout our city and they go through a number of steps to reach completion.
We have been closely following the Black Lives Matter Murals project conversation in the media and on social media. Although this project is not managed through The City of Calgary public art program, we’ve had many discussions with project stakeholders and community members to fully understand the positions of those with lived experience on this topic.
For this project, the public art program’s role will be to provide support and guidance to the organizers and to help move this initiative forward in a constructive manner.
