Public Art in Woodstock

Public art holds the power to tell our stories, celebrate our history, commemorate important events, provide unique attractions for citizens and visitors, as well as create spaces for engagement and the fostering of civic pride.

In 2017 the City of Woodstock introduced a Public Art Policy outlining the process and procedure for the selection, installation and maintenance of public art in/on municipally owned public space.

As part of the Cultural Services Department, the Woodstock Art Gallery plays a critical role in fostering the City’s public art collection.

Current public art opportunities are listed below under the Call to Artists section.


Public Art Application Guide

The Woodstock Art Gallery has developed a guide to help artists understand the process of applying for a public art opportunity in the City of Woodstock.

The guide covers topics including calls to artists, the selection committee and process, budget, taxes, design development, materials and fabrication, subcontracting, permits, insurances, maintenance and conservation, etc.
