Public Art

We deliver public and urban art strategies to satisfy permit conditions, engage residents and surrounding communities, and create a sense of place in line with construction schedules and deliverables.

We think of ourselves as the bridge that brings all the parties involved in a public art project together: council planning departments and arts units, property developers, architects, interior designers, artists and stakeholders. Acting as the conduit, we make incorporating public art into residential, commercial, retail and mixed-use developments accessible and enjoyable.

COUNCIL APPROVAL OF BUILDING PLANS

We have the knowledge, experience and networks to successfully incorporate public art into building plans, and have them approved. This enables the cohesive integration of art into a development and fosters collaborative relationships that give every stakeholder a sense of pride in and ownership of the art.

CONCEPT TO INSTALLATION

Once we understand you and your project, our integrated public art strategy kicks in. It covers artist engagement, briefing, concept design, creative, planning, commissioning, fabrication, documentation and supervision, and takes a public artwork from concept and commissioning through to creation and installation.

EMERGING TO ESTABLISHED ARTISTS

Our 15 years of involvement in the Australian arts community means that we have access to artists working across all mediums including sculpture, painting, installation, video projection, light art, photography, printmaking and murals. We  engage artists from a wide range of artistic disciplines, emerging to established, whose talents are recognised both locally and internationally.

“Andy’s ability to manage our expectations, negotiate with council decision makers and conclude successful outcomes with her panel of artists has been exemplary. It tells a story of her ability to empathise with and manage her artists wishes, fit with the rigors of managing a development budget, negotiate with local councils and meet demands and deliver on time and budget – all with her customary flair, wicked sense of humour and a whole lot of great enthusiasm, energy and fun.”
Steve Buxton, Managing Director, Avenir Projects

ADA wins City of Port Phillip Design and Development Awards

We are delighted to have won the City of Port Phillip Council Design and Development Awards 2020 for ‘Integrated Art’ with ‘Opera’ by Matthew Harding.

This category recognises public art which is innovative and assists a rethink of the public domain.

‘Opera’ by Matthew Harding represents an exploration of the organic and the feminine as a metaphor for the elegance and fluidity of the Opera architectural facade. ADA Consulting led the realisation of this sculpture with the dedicated support of developer Golden Age, Time and Place and fabricator Robert Hook.
