The Town of Mosman Park runs a number of programs and initiatives that seek to engage residents in a range of artistic and cultural opportunities that enliven and enrich the community.
Below is a list of some of the programs and initiatives that exist on an annual basis. Information relating to current and upcoming initiatives will be listed on the Town’s Events or News pages.
The Town of Mosman Park has a collection of over 80 diverse artworks and photographs that form a rich cultural resource of the Town. The collection spans over nine decades, with representations from well-known West Australian artists like the late Robert Juniper, D’hange Yammanee, David Jay Reed, Mary-Jane Malet and Marshall Clifton.
The focus of the art collection is to document, preserve, acquire and display artworks that reflect and respond to Mosman Park’s history, identify and character. A number of the artworks in the Town’s collection have been acquired through the Town’s Art Award, which began in 1985 and ran through 2012. In 2013, the Award continued however with only Photography and Junior Art submissions being accepted.
Winners of the Photography Award remains as the Town’s primary source of acquisitions to the collection.
A digital art gallery of the Town’s collection is available for viewing on the Town’s website here.
Individuals interested in viewing the art collection in person may request a tour from the Community Development Team on 9383 6600 or by emailing email@example.com. An appointment is required.
The Town of Mosman Park believes that public art plays an important role in the everyday lives of residents, as it can enhance and complement their environments, bring communities together, offer social and educational opportunities and promote tourism.
Choosing the right location, type and narrative for the artwork is essential in determining whether a piece will be appropriate, effective and well-received by the community. As such, the Town of Mosman Park developed a Public Art Policy and Strategy in 2012 that provides the Town a planned and considered approach to its procurement and placement of public art within its local government boundaries.
