Art and the Public Realm Bristol – Bristol City Council’s (BCC) public art programme has been active since the adoption of a Public Art Policy in 2000, and the development of a Public Art Strategy in 2003. To date there have been over a hundred commissions, which are are recorded in a website with details of art in the public realm projects. In addition there is further information on the artworks location – using a dedicated mapping system, audio/podcasts of artists talks staged at Arnolfini (as part of BCC’s dedicated ‘Art in the City Lecture Series) and information on the BCC Public Art Policy and Strategy. All works profiled are the result of BCC’s public art policy implementation, or are linked to the public art programme. As such this site is the primary source of information for public art works in Bristol, advocacy and debate.
