Charlottetown Public Art

Click here for details about the Call to Artists: Downtown Lightbox Exhibit.

Every corner of this historic city tells an ever-expanding story, and anyone wandering through Charlottetown’s enchanting streets bears witness to these overlapping narratives. Artists breathe life into these tales, peeling back the layers of time and inviting us to experience the meaning behind these stories, both old and new.

An essential component of our rich streetscapes is our remarkable and growing collection of public art — a beacon of our cultural identity. It weaves a vibrant and soulful tapestry that binds our community together and proclaims the diversity of Charlottetown’s creative energy.

Charlottetown Art Walk

Web Banner

In July 2023, the City of Charlottetown released a new self-guided art walk.

Focused on the downtown core, this self-guided art walk tour can be enjoyed at your own pace and explored in any order. The suggested route spans just under two kilometres from the Charlottetown Fire Department (89 Kent St.) to Confederation Landing. Along the way, you’ll discover hidden treasures around every corner, most of which can be experienced from the sidewalk or just a few steps away.

Print copies of the self-guided Charlottetown Art Walk pamphlet are available at the Visitors Information Centre at City Hall (199 Queen Street) during regular business hours.
