Public Art Master Plan Review

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a public art master plan review should be worth millions. The City of Burlington is looking to gather feedback into the Public Art Master Plan.

Residents are invited to provide feedback through a standard online survey and through a mapping tool to show where they would like to see public art, or attend one of the public drop-in sessions.

Online Tools:

    1. Online Mapping:  Where would you like to see public art in the city?  Recommend a potential public art location by placing a pin on the map.   Click HERE to access the online mapping tool.
    2. Online Survey:  Tell us more about the kinds of projects you would like to see in the future. Click HERE to access the online survey tool.

The online mapping and survey tools will be open until Feb. 2, 2018.

What is the Public Art Master Plan?

Burlington’s Public Art Master Plan provides a 10-year plan for integrating art into the public spaces. The Plan is both a roadmap for the community—a vision for how public art can enhance Burlington’s public places, architecture, and landscapes—and a set of processes to put that plan into action.

The Public Art Master Plan (PAMP) addresses art, which is owned by the City of Burlington and located in public spaces. “Public space” is municipally owned spaces used by the general public, including parks, road allowances, tunnels, boulevards, streets, courtyards, squares, bridges, building exteriors, foyers, concourses and publicly accessible indoor areas.

The works may be permanent, temporary or mobile. The PAMP distinguishes and provides guidance for the Public Art Program for the City of Burlington.

Goals of the project

  • Assess public’s receptiveness, awareness and support for public art
  • Review and update current list of potential public art sites and projects
  • Identify and prioritize opportunities for new projects; explore methods to more directly link project planning to annual budgeting process
  • Plan and prioritize project scope and scale in accordance with the Public Art Reserve Fund
  • Clarify policies surrounding temporary public art and community-driven art projects
  • Explore the need for a policy surrounding integrated public art projects/embedded artists within city-led projects
