Presenting the PATH Public Art Selections
The Town of Hinton is proud to announce that following an extensive evaluation process, two pieces of public art have been selected to be featured at the Hinton Performing Arts Venue.
Culture plays a key role in Hinton, advancing social, cultural, and economic development of our community. Through the facilitation of public art installations like these, Hinton can generate economic wealth, improve quality of life, and reduce anti-social behaviours, all while building healthier communities and providing opportunities for minority groups.
The funding of these art installations is accounted for in the PAV budget, as per Policy 90, Public Art. The policy mandates that 1.5% of total project costs associated with new or existing municipal buildings, infrastructure, and other town own lands or facilities or structures be dedicated towards public art.
Two different pieces of art have been commissioned for the PAV. Learn more about each of them below.
