"A draft public art strategy and information panels will be available at the exhibition.
"All comments received will then be considered in the preparation of a final strategy that will guide individual projects."
The exhibition follows on from the appointment of public art experts to review the draft strategy.
Public art forms part of the Waterfront City regeneration programme supported by the European Regional Development Fund, the Welsh Government and the Arts Council for Wales.
Cabinet member for regeneration Nick Bradley said: "The Waterfront Connections and Boulevard projects offer an opportunity to introduce public art along a key gateway in and out of Swansea city centre that will be seen by many thousands of motorists, pedestrians and cyclists every day.
"Public art can help generate an impression that a quality environment and sense of arrival are important factors in Swansea.
"We've already seen the positive impact of public art in areas like SA1, the Maritime Quarter and Princess Way, but this is a chance to introduce creative works elsewhere in the city and attract more investment in future.
"We're keen to hear all views on the draft strategy and can reassure people that consideration will be given to all feedback received."
Swansea's Boulevard scheme will see major environmental improvements between the River Tawe bridges and the LC.
The aim is to generate better links between the city centre and waterfront by improving north-south links across the road and provide a more attractive setting for economic growth through attractive landscaping.
The ongoing Waterfront Connections project includes reopening Paxton Street tunnel and widening pavements.
It also embrace new pedestrian and cycle routes to link Oystermouth Road with the promenade.
People can also visit Swansea Council's website at www.swansea.gov.uk until Monday January 21 to have a look at the information online and submit feedback.
