Public Art in Victoria Park
Victoria Park is an inner south eastern suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located over the
Causeway from the city. The suburb derives its name from "Victoria Park Estate", a development that took place
there in the 1890s.
A small percentage from Victoria Park rates goes into a Community Art Reserve from which all public
art projects are funded. Private dveloper with projects over $5 million are also responsible for providing public
art in the development equal to 1% of project costs. Decisions are guided by the Arts and Culture Committee.
In December 2010 the Town suspended its Public Art Master Plan, to support the delivery of 12 new recently
installed public art commissions selected by the Arts and Culture Advisory Committee.
