La politique de la ville d'Ottawa envers l'art local vue à travers les actions de son Programme d'Art Public

Abstract : This research paper has been made during an exchange year in Canada, in the City of Ottawa. It is taking his sources into an internship into the Public Art Program of the City. The goal of this paper is to weight the City of Ottawa's attitude toward the local artists, through the mandates of the Public Art Program. Since its foundation as an independent nation, Canada has been seeking a community reassembling culture. After a post colonialist period when the national art was very conformist landscapes, Canada went toward multiculturalism and the open-minded position on contemporary art we nowadays know. The Public Art Program of Ottawa's mandate is to promote and increase the city's artistic patrimony. In this perspective, he uses a public art collection in constant circulation, a direct purchase program to increase it and two professional galleries where the local artists can exhibit their work. He is also managing large public art commissions. In spite of all his activities, the Public Art Program is not always granted with the proper finances.
