The Public Art and Heritage Collection

We oversee a number of public artworks, significant civic historical monuments and memorabilia within Moonee Valley.

What is in our collection?

We divide our collection into three specific areas including:

  • Visual artwork housed within civic buildings throughout Moonee Valley
  • Public art which is outdoor artwork created for the public domain
  • Heritage items which includes some civic related memorabilia and monuments

The Moonee Valley Art Collection Acquisition Policy

The Moonee Valley Art Collection Policy recognises the need to maintain and develop the collection.

Acquisitions are purchased through public art commissions, donations, art prizes or the council budget but it must meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrates relevance to the people, past, present and future of Moonee Valley
  • Can be integrated with our cultural programs including infrastructure projects
  • Possesses significant historical relevance, including early depictions of the landscape and indications of the Aboriginal presence
  • Is appropriate for the proposed location
  • Will be publically visible and accessible
  • Is the highest affordable quality
  • Is an original work or limited edition sign and numbered by the artist
