On the lookout for a new kind of art
Bass Coast Shire Council is seeking Expression of Interest (EOI) from experienced artists to create a contemporary public artwork to be installed in the Bass Valley and Hinterland region.
Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, explained that the key aim for the $47,000 commission is to provide an additional attraction to the area, drawing visitor’s to explore the Hinterland region.
“We’d love to see some really quirky and different concepts come through the EOI process,”Cr Tessari said.
“Something that will spark people’s curiosity, maybe a series of smaller scale artworks creating a trail through our beautiful and less travelled routes, and something that really captures the character and culture of the Bass Valley and Hinterland region.”
Artists can choose and propose their preferred sites, which will be subject to Council approval.
Applications close on Sunday, 16 December.
Artists can access more information, the EOI guidelines and the grant application at Council’s website www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/publicart
