Public Art

Public Art

Public art plays an important role providing social, economic and environmental benefits.

Our Public Art Strategy will ensure the program’s legacy of transformative transport infrastructure and contribute to the unique identity of each station and precinct.

The program-wide approach will guide public art delivery, drawing inspiration from Perth’s Aboriginal and local culture, history, landscape and place. Artists will develop projects by responding to the theme of 'Our Pathways' while referencing connections and place.

Artist Opportunities

Young and emerging WA artists looking to apply for public art opportunities on METRONET projects can now view free METRONET Public Art Learning Modules.

Designed to help artists understand and respond to the procurement process, the easy-to-follow modules cover:

  • introduction to public art
  • the application process, from expressions of interest to commissioning
  • presentation of art concepts
  • engaging with community 
  • examples of submissions and public art projects.

This initiative is a METRONET Public Art Strategy commitment to building our local creative industries sector by helping make the application process clearer for emerging artists.
