Mural commission for Roberts Reserve Playground

The City of Canada Bay is seeking Expressions of Interest from artists to design and install a mural artwork on a play wall in the Roberts Reserve. This project aims to achieve public art that resonates with the natural environment and local culture encouraging linking of history, community and the physical space including the trees and parkland. There are two themes Council has identified which would work in this park.

Theme 1 The Natural Environment

The natural environment is an integral part of this area.  The artwork creating a sense of natural beauty that resonates with the viewer 

Theme 2: Community

People love the community feel of their urban village, with many residents living in the area for a long time.  There is a high demographic of families in the area plus nearby schools.

The artist will be allowed to respond to the themese in a fun and innovative way. Ideally, it would include an “instragram” element so people passing by can be included in the artwork.  

The site is a brick wall currently painted a white and artists can use the whole wall. The wall is approximately 3 metres length x 2 metres at its highest point.

The budget is upto $3,000. the work should be completed by September.

the brief can be down loaded from the Councils website. the opportunity closes on the 19  June 2019.
