City seeking expressions of interest for new street art mural
The City of Greater Bendigo is calling for expressions of interest from experienced mural and street artists to create a new artwork for central Bendigo.
The large-scale artwork will be painted onto the side of the building on the corner of Myers Street and Mitchell Street, with the artwork to face onto Myers Street. The maximum scale of the artwork would be 10m high by 10m wide.
City Creative Communities Coordinator Maree Tonkin said this was an exciting opportunity for someone to deliver a new, vibrant piece of public art.
“There is no theme for the work but artists will need to propose an original piece that best demonstrates creative practice, talent and skill, and has not been repeated elsewhere,” Ms Tonkin said.
“The City is excited to have secured another large-scale canvas ready for someone to leave their creative mark.
“The finished artwork will be a great addition to the street art scene that has developed across Greater Bendigo in the past few years, including the transformed Pennyweight Walk, Bath Lane and Chancery Lane murals, Art in the Conservatory and the Elmore Swimming Pool platypus mural.”
Expressions of interest close Monday February 18. The successful artist will be advised in March 2019 and the artwork will need to be installed between April and June 2019.
