There have been mixed reactions to the unveiling of three new public artworks in Sydney's central business district, including a 50-metre cloud-shaped arch.
Reaction on Twitter and Facebook has ranged from complaints about the artworks being a waste of taxpayers' money to those who believe they would improve the city.
Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said everyone would be able to have their say as the project was open to public consultation and has to go through a development application process.
"I think every step has been taken to get the most exciting art proposals for our city and of course we now go through a process of consultation," she said.
"We look forward to engaging with people and invite everyone to go to our website and give us their views."
Tokyo-based architect Junya Ishigama's 50-metre cloud-shaped arch was selected from nearly 700 entries to soar above George Street at Town Hall.
The curved steel plate sculpture would act as a gateway for a new pedestrian section of George Street, allowing both people and light rail to pass beneath.
When completed it would be visible from Kings Cross to the east, Wynyard to the north and Liverpool Street to the south.
There were two other works chosen to feature as part of the City of Sydney's public art plan.
British artist Tracey Emin's 60 bronze bird sculptures would be perched along parts of Bridge and Grosvenor streets.
The third installation was a giant milk crate-shaped pavilion by Sydney-based Egyptian-born artist Hany Armanious, which would be installed at Belmore Park near Central Station.
The works were unanimously selected by an expert advisory panel for consideration.
If the development application process was successful, the art was expected to be installed from 2017.
