Cape Paterson Public Art Commission

Cape Paterson Public Art Commission

Expression of Interest

Commission value - $45,000

We're extending an invitation to suitably experienced artists to create a contemporary public artwork to be situated in the township of Cape Paterson.

Artists are invited to submit design concepts that will deliver an innovative and engaging creative artwork that stands as a Place Statement.

Artists are to propose the preferred site/s within the township. Four potential locations have been identified as suitable sites by Council and the Community Working Group. Depending on the nature of the work proposed, the artist may select a single site or an array of smaller discreet locations scattered across the town.

The Cape Paterson Public Art Commission is being delivered as part of Council’s annual Public Art Program.
