Street art in the Parkes CBD
Take the Public Art Trail and experience our stories.
Stroll through the Parkes CBD and discover through art, the culture and character of Parkes.
Parkes Shire Council’s plan was to create a visible arts presence throughout the CBD with a public art program that engages artists’ creative ideas to celebrate the values of Parkes and define the CBD as a place where people want to be. It has been a key component of Council’s CBD Vibrancy Strategy.
A series of public art installations in the main street by local artist Jac Clark were commissioned and a launch of the installation was held in 2016.
Five installations were initially created to capture the culture, identity and character of the Shire. The art works have been strategically placed to lead locals and visitors through the CBD to add to the economy and vibrancy of the main street.
Since then, the public art trail has expanded into the townships of Peak Hill and Trundle.
