Call for Expressions of Interest – Public Art
Location – O’Connell Street, Auckland Central
Monday 20 August 2012
Organisation: Auckland Council Public Art
Work type: Contract
Closing Date: Sunday, 2 September 2012
Auckland Council’s Public Art Team requests Expressions of Interest from artists, working individually or in teams, who desire an opportunity to create a new light-based artwork in conjunction with planned upgrades to O’Connell Street. It is anticipated that the new light based artwork will help draw pedestrians to this intimately scaled lane that is home to several heritage buildings in Auckland’s City Centre. The project budget is $80,000, inclusive of artist’s fees, all phases of design, and final implementation.
Send up to five images of past work and a brief professional history (up to 400 words per team member) in an email attachment no greater than 2MB to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on 2 September 2012. You are also welcome to include a statement (up to 500 words) of a proposed approach to this project.
