measures at arts centres such as security cameras and patrols. These measures are funded by building occupants and are not specifically to protect public artwork.
A Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) camera was mounted in Petrie Plaza to capture footage of the artwork On the Staircase from its installation in 2009 until October 2014. The ongoing cost to operate the camera, and actively monitor its footage, was part of the overall cost of the City-wide CCTV security camera system. A separate cost for the camera during that period is not known. After the removal of the artwork in October 2014, this camera is still operational and continues to form part of the CCTV public safety network.
The total expenditure on collection management each financial year covers scheduled maintenance such as cleaning as well as unscheduled maintenance activities such as graffiti removal and artwork remediation following vandalism. Public artworks managed by artsACT are located throughout the Territory and total expenditure by financial year is as follows:
2009-10 - $19,800
2010-11 - $28,135
2011-12 - $13,561
2012-13 - $149,078
2013-14 - $150,158
2014-15 - $156,091
2015-16 - $860 (year to date)
Expenditure on collection management rises considerably in 2012-13 because of an increase in funding to improve the maintenance of public art. $150,000 (indexed) for public art managed by artACT was appropriated in the 2012-13 Budget.
Territory and Municipal Services is also responsible for the management of public art and it does not break down costs for public art installations for lighting, security and maintenance, including cleaning.
