City of Canada Bay public art ride
The City of Canada Bay public art rides are a great way to explore the many artworks and art-based activities in the public domain. Many of the artworks communicate and represent cultural meanings, linking strongly with the City of Canada Bay heritage ride.
Public art is a significant part of the experience of place, for locals and visitors. It can help ascribe meaning and offer new perspectives. Public art also helps to foster a sense of community cohesion and connection through the provision of high quality environments and amenity.
The City of Canada Bay has invested in the development of a diverse portfolio of public art works from major commissions such as ‘Cumulus’ to small works in the public domain such as the ‘Refresh Drummoyne’ poem feature on street furniture in the Drummoyne shopping village centre.
The Public Art Rides incorporate sculptures, murals, place-making elements, artist designed seating and fencing, paving work and lighting elements among other art-based attractions in the local area.
There are two rides taking in all of the artworks in Canada Bay, one which focuses on the Drummoyne and Five Dock area in the east of the City of Canada Bay, and the other around Concord and Rhodes in the west of the City of Canada Bay.
An additional five public art works are located at Breakfast Point, and can all be easily visited in a discreet visit to the Cabarita Park or can be added on to either of the other two rides through the foreshore walk connection.
Exploring the public artworks by bike lends a new perspective on how you might interpret and respond to these pieces - physically and emotionally; and also offers a convenient and efficient way to tour as many of the works as possible.
This carefully curated ride ensures an efficient and meaningful route between the sites, while also allowing your own flexibility to incorporate as many, or as few, of the sites as you have time for.
