Three Centuries of Public Art: Historic Halifax Regional Municipality. Each of the 114 pieces of public art would fall into place and sketch out for me our history of HRM: our wars, our sorrows, our joy, our immigrant faces, and our growth as a municipal city. Now it seems I can join in many more conversations adding something informative from what the public art has whispered in our ears. 270 coloured photos of the Halifax Region’s public art, 9 maps, 6 walking tours. 114 stories including its famous sea disasters, Swiss Air FL111 and a tribute to the Royal Canadian Navy’s 100th Anniversary.
