Wharf call to artists


QUEEN’S Wharf Brisbane is offering a huge boost to artists, with a multimilli­on-dollar plan to commission works for the $3.6bn project.

The ambitious program kicks off today, with Destinatio­n Brisbane Consortium announcing what promises to be the richest art procuremen­t process by a corporate entity in Queensland.

DBC project director Simon Crooks said a robust selection process would ensure each of the areas within the 7.4ha of public space earmarked for installati­ons would deliver memorable artworks.

“We are encouragin­g the Australian art community to get imaginativ­e,” he said.
