What does public art tell us about who we are and where we live? Is it possible to understand a city through the art that it commissions and displays? The City of Adelaide is home to public art from across several decades and is woven into the very fabric of the city. Most often we pass it unseen or unacknowledged as it blends into the visual mosaic of urban life. From ‘The Forest of Dreams’ to the red brick sculpture ‘Songs of Australia, Volume Three, At Home’, this walk takes a diagonal route across the city to explore public art and the idea of home.
