Brighton Council has developed a public art strategy in conjunction with Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) curator Emma Pike.

BRIGHTON Council has developed a public art strategy in conjunction with Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) curator Emma Pike. 

Council’s general manager James Dryburgh said the new strategy’s aim was to add value to the cultural, aesthetic and economic vitality of Brighton Municipality’s community. 

The Museum of Old and New Art’s curator Emma Pike helped to develop the public art policy with Brighton Council. Here are some examples of MONA’s on-site external art installations. 

“It’s well known public art contributes to a community’s identity, fosters community pride and a sense of belonging, and enhances the quality of life for residents and visitors. That’s why Council endorsed a public art strategy for our community that would help us to develop projects within the community for the future.

“These projects will aim to create vibrant and meaningful public spaces, and may take place over long or short timeframes, be permanent or temporary depending on the circumstances,” Mr Dryburgh said.
