Background to public art In BelfastThe remarkable regeneration of Belfast in recent years owes much to an ever-increasing variety of public art that has helped to transform the physical landscape of the city.
But public art can achieve much more than simply visual impact. It can make us think about the places in which we live and visit and help us understand their character and heritage. It can help communities discover a sense of identity and explore and express their values. Public art can also inspire us, challenge assumptions and heighten our appreciation of public space.
