Public art and art collections
Public art contributes to a strong sense of place and helps create a feeling of community identity.
The City has invested in a variety of artworks such as sculptures, mosaics and murals, with many works by prominent local, national and international artists featured throughout our City’s streets, parks, foreshores and facilities.
In accordance with the City’s public art policy, we continue to develop and maintain the collection, with information about current projects and opportunities made available on this page.
Lina is the name of the stunning statue that stands 10 metres tall at the entrance of the City of Stirling administration centre.
The name Lina is derived from the artists’ memories of an Italian woman who lived locally and worked for his father during the 1950s and 1960s. The memories of Lina are of a generous, cheerful and helpful woman who gave an insight into another culture and life.
The City's art collection features approximately 190 works in various mediums from established and emerging local, national and international artists. Many artworks in the collection are displayed in the City's public buildings, including the civic and administration centre, libraries, recreation centres and other community facilities.
The collection of visual art represents a cultural and financial investment for the City and an art collection policy ensures that new artworks are acquired each year, which the community can view across various platforms and locations.
