We need to distinguish between public art and exhibits to the public. Public art means artwork (be it murals, statues or whatever) for example in the street, park, shopping centre or foyer of an open building. It would need to be publicly accessible, without payment of an entry fee.

Objects exhibited within a museum or gallery, accessible to the public only under conditions such as opening hours or paying a fee, are tagged exhibit=artwork.
