Public art in Knox
The Knox Public Art collection includes a variety of striking artworks displayed in public spaces throughout Knox, that help beautify and enhance a sense of positive connection to community precincts. Knox features some iconic major works by renowned public artists, including Matt Calvert, David Booth (aka Ghostpatrol), and Carla McRae.
Knox is also home to a series of public art platforms, including the Billboard at Gilbert Park Skate Precinct, and the Light boxes series within pedestrian laneways throughout Knox. These platforms allow the rotation of collection artworks, photographs and public exhibition programs such as Knox Immerse.
