The Metro Tunnel Project will provide a huge boost to the Victorian arts community in the coming months, with sixty new commissions announced for local artists.
Arts industry workers including artists, poets, writers, musicians and performers and more are invited to register for an artist pool. Artists will then be selected from the pool to apply for the commissions.
The works will be displayed on the Metro Tunnel’s construction hoardings and other structures later in 2020, bringing some much-needed colour and life to Melbourne streets as the city prepares for a recovery period.
