Artists are invited to respond to an unusual space in the Scone CBD for public mural artwork. Once the well-known Niagara Cafe, 133 Kelly St is now a throughway and amenities area. Several walls offer the chances for treatment through an innovative and engaging approach that speaks to the place, its history, or another theme that fits the town and region.
Upper Hunter Shire Council (UHSC) is inviting artists to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) outlining a design idea and approach to the spaces. Council is looking for artworks that have a real presence, whether that be beautiful, intriguing, commemorative, telling a story, mischievous or playful, puzzling, cosy, poppy, historical, jaw-dropping, pretty …
There’ll be an optional recce/site visit for artists considering making a submission on Wednesday, 26 October 2022 at 11.30am.
Up to three artists will be shortlisted; they will be paid a design fee of $500 for a more detailed Proposal.
EOI are due by 2pm on Wednesday, 2 November 2022.
