Public art artists call out

Filed : Arts and funding opportunities .

Orange City Council are calling for Expressions of Interest from artists or artist-led teams to create site-specific public art for multiple sites across Orange.

EOIs for the first stage of the project—Public Murals and Installations—are now open and continuing until 3 January 2021.

As part of the Future City Plan, Orange City Council (OCC) is seeking Expressions of Interest from artists/artist‐led teams for the potential creation and installation of public art across the CBD of Orange, NSW. This first stage is an open call out for Public Murals and Installations.

Orange City Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from artists/artist‐led teams for the potential creation
and installation of public art across the Orange CBD. This will be across two stages:
1. The first stage in 2020/2021 involves the creation of Art Murals and Installations across Orange CBD including McNamara Lane and Anson Street. It will transform the quiet spaces into a thriving and reinvigorated CBD of Orange that visitors will gravitate to. The Art will integrate with existing architecture and build a dynamic and visual experience that speaks of the lively spirit of Orange.

2. The second stage across 2022‐2023 will involve Public Sculpture installed across multiple sites in Orange to increase visitor and residents’ meaningful interaction with public spaces. EOI
submissions for the second stage will be called at a later date.

The project will offer opportunities for local, regional and established Australian artists to create ambitious, high calibre art that will strengthen the artists’ profile, as well as Oranges’ reputation as a cultural destination.

An ambitious project, the vision is to enhance the public spaces and celebrate the cultural identity of Orange. For artists, visitors and residents the Public Art project will create an immersive encounter with Orange that sparks imagination and inspires.
