Some light work
THE City of Perth has invited WA artists to create unique lightbased artworks for Council House after dark.
Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi said the flagship project Lighthouse was a new chapter in commissioned temporary public art.
“Public art delivers memorable experiences, adding to the attractiveness and vitality of our city,” she said.
Artists can mix colours, patterns and rhythm to create a series of sequences using the existing lighting infrastructure, which includes more than 22,000 energy-efficient LED lights on Council House.
The artworks will be displayed in October and November.
The City is also seeking proposals for Transart: Experimental, a public art initiative to develop temporary works for the City’s public spaces.
Submissions for both close at 5pm on Monday, July 27. Visit www.perth.wa.gov.au /arts_culture.
