Public art in Bonn Square

Oxford is full of cultural jewels, offering world-renowned art galleries, museums and theatres as well as a rich heritage of breathtaking architecture, all contained within easy reach of the visiting public.

As part of Oxford City Council's commitment to developing and promoting the built environment and enhancing the city centre, public art work is highly regarded and often becomes integral to a new housing development, hospital, community park or leisure centre.

Within the documents below you will find just some of the many individual, quirky pieces dotted in and around the city for everyone to enjoy.

Designed to guide the visitor around some of the less obvious parts of Oxford, the map is a celebration of new and innovative art works within the public realm - it is our outdoor art gallery and one we hope you will enjoy again and again.

Please note some of the works featured have limited access and may be subject to a small charge.
