Art Collection



ICC Sydney is home to a superb collection of Australian art both inside the venue and throughout the public domain. An important part of Sydney’s heritage, the works have a Sydney emphasis with artists and their works initially chosen because of their connection to Sydney or the celebration of Sydney, its harbour and shorelines.

Art Collection Book

Artworks in ICC Sydney’s collection are showcased throughout the venue and celebrated here in ICC Sydney’s Art Collection book.


The Darling Harbour public art program sought to communicate, educate and engage the public. All artists were provided with extensive information on the site and its history, including heritage interpretation strategy. Artists were selected following consideration of their works and their response to a particular aspect of the site.
