Public Art

A work of art increases the value of an area and creates an attractive living environment

An aesthetically pleasing environment and interesting buildings make the municipality more attractive. When implemented on a large scale, works of art change the appearance of the whole municipality and have a positive impact on both image and tourism.

Art creates a sense of well-being and comfort. Works of art placed in buildings, courtyards, parks, squares and other public spaces offer people a daily experience of art. Expertly selected works of art make buildings unique and different, and add to their economic value.

The use of public art also presents artists with employment opportunities and supports the Finnish visual arts.

Works of art can be pictures, photographs, sound installations, sculptures, landscape design or for example a water feature. Artworks can be separate and individual, but also for example part of a building's design, a colour scheme for a space, a new way of processing concrete, or a surface treatment designed to be a work of art, using materials such as wood, ceramic tiles, plastic or metal. Architectural features can also be regarded as works of art.

All works of art in the municipality are intended to represent mainly contemporary art and to support currently living active artists.
