Public Art Plan

In July 2023, County Council approved a staff recommendation that the municipality develop a public art plan to inform the future public art policy for Prince Edward County. The Prince Edward County Arts Council is leading the development of this plan with support from municipal staff. The project includes significant public consultation. Visit the municipality’s public engagement platform to learn more and get involved. 

While the public art plan is under development, Council has instituted a temporary moratorium on permanent public art installations on municipal property.

However, the municipality does allow for temporary public art installations. Council has adopted procedures to govern requests for temporary public art installations until a public art plan is adopted.  The guideline and application form can be found by following this link:
