Sta­dium art­work wanted

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

ARTISTS are in­vited to reg­is­ter in­ter­est for the fi­nal two art­work op­por­tu­ni­ties at the Perth Sta­dium and Sports Precinct. More than $2 mil­lion has been al­lo­cated for the pub­lic art across Perth Sta­dium and the Sports Precinct, which will house sculp­tures and in­te­grated art works to open in early 2018. The pieces will cel­e­brate WA in­dige­nous cul­ture, land­scape, his­tory and com­mu­nity and in­cor­po­rate themes of peo­ple, land and sport. Sports and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Mia Davies said the re­sponse to the first pub­lic art op­por­tu­nity re­leased last year had been met with in­ter­est from around Aus­tralia and the world. “One of the lat­est art­work op­por­tu­ni­ties will be a sur­face-mounted piece in the pedes­trian un­der­pass that links the Perth Sta­dium Sta­tion to the sports precinct,” Ms Davies said. “The sec­ond will be a large-scale art­work in the east of the sports precinct be­tween the un­der­pass and the east­ern sta­dium en­trance. Both lo­ca­tions will en­joy lots of pub­lic ex­po­sure and foot traf­fic on event and non-event days.” In­ter­ested artists should email el­ to re­quest a brief. The suc­cess­ful artists will be ap­pointed later this year, with art­work in place ahead of the sta­dium open­ing in 2018.
