Public Art & Placemaking

City of Hamilton Public Art Collection 2009-2019
An illustrated talk by Ken Coit

Since 2009 the City of Hamilton Public Art Program has commissioned 20 public art works across the city and has been recognized three times by the Creative Cities Network of Canada. This presentation will provide an overview of the 40+ piece municipal public art collection and outline the public process by which art is selected. It will also demonstrate the important role that art and artists can play in telling our collective stories through the public spaces that we share.

Ken Coit is the Manager of Placemaking Public Art and Projects for the City of Hamilton. Following his graduation from the University Of Waterloo School Of Architecture he worked in private architectural practice before joining the Ciy of Hamilton as an Urban Designer. Ken took a lead role in Hamilton’s Public Art program in 2010. He is a passionate advocate for authentic public engagement in the making of public space.
