Next time when you are out for a stroll in Goulburn, don't forget to enjoy the unique artworks installed in the city.
The artworks featured on Goulburn Regional Art Gallery's 'Public Art Walk' video includes work of artists Bill Dorman, Kirstie and Dale Chalker, Luke Chiswell, Beastman (Brad Eastman) and Jenny Bell and Emrah Baki Ulas.
They are installed on the route from the Visitor Information Centre to the gallery.
The Goulburn Regional Art Gallery has commissioned artists for its public art program since 1982, with a broad view of showcasing practices from our locale and beyond.
"Some of these themes include agriculture, environmental sustainability and recycled materials, youth engagement programs, positive mental health, and more.
"The importance of public art in a community is its ability to reflect on the community, to bring art to the general public outside the critical sphere of the Gallery, to promote imagination, interpretation and discourse, and to be freely displayed in perpetuity."
Bill Dorman's work 'Ma baby gone and left me' and Kirstie and Dale Chalker's work 'Blue Notes' are located at the the Visitor Information Centre. They were made from recycled materials in response to the annual Australian Blues Music Festival held in Goulburn
Luke Chiswell's work 'Hold Your Head Up' is a bronze sculpture that relates directly to the importance of positive mental health in a regional community and is located in Belmore Park around the corner from Headspace
The gallery has received positive responses to the artworks from the public including the one on gallery's latest project 'Public Art Walk' video.
"This tells us that our community has a brilliant sense of imagination and curiosity, as well as pride in its community and local history," she added.
