About public art in Cheltenham

Public art aims to improve and enhance the environment of Cheltenham and to increase awareness and appreciation of where we live and work.

Cheltenham has a public art panel which was established in 1992 to offer advice and guidance on the production, siting and content of public art within the town. The panel and its individual members have many years' experience in advising upon and commissioning public art.

Cheltenham Borough Council approved the Cheltenham public art strategy in 2017 to help strengthen the towns identity, a sense of place, support local creativity and community engagement.
