The Town of Claremont prides itself on developing and fostering art and culture within its local community. The ability to express and celebrate our creativity, identity and history is an integral part of our cultural identity. It is one of the reasons Claremont remains a sought after place to live, work and visit.

Public art is an integral element of the Town’s vision for Claremont’s cultural identity. As such the Town has committed 1 per cent of the total project cost of new or renovated buildings to public art. It has also encouraged private developers to contribute to the installation of public art via its Town planning process. The installation of two new public art works in the revitalized Avion Way in the Claremont Town Centre is an example of the Town’s ongoing commitment.
