A bronze sculpture of a rabbit and a dog on a bicycle and a coloured concrete Beaufort Street sign are part of a $200,000 art installation to enliven Mt Lawley.

They are in stage two of the City of Vincent's Beaufort Street enhancement plan, which includes artworks between Walcott Street and St Alban's Avenue.

The art includes 10 illuminated boxes to house "mini exhibitions" and the bronze dog and rabbit on the Grosvenor Road and Beaufort Street corner.

The first stage included a mural in the alley next to the Daily Planet cafe and colourful "New York-style" seats are to be installed within weeks.

Enhancement committee chairman Cr John Carey said the works would reflect the unique and eclectic mix of residents and businesses and the strong local sense of community and vitality.

Mayor Alannah MacTiernan said the "history in the making" would transform Beaufort Street.
