Major public art commission opportunity

Published on 04 May 2022

We are seeking proposals from experienced artists to create a permanent contemporary public artwork at Olympic Park in Heidelberg West, valued at $100,000.

Olympic Park, located on the western edge of Banyule, is an established sport and community recreation reserve with a significant history. Its origins are as a prominent training base for the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games and it lies beside the 1956 Olympic Village district.

The commissioned artwork will respond to the Olympic heritage of the site, build on existing community pride and identity and inspire users of the park by enhancing a sense of place.

This commission will be awarded to an individual artist or artist team that offers the best comprehensive approach to the artwork opportunity outlined within the detailed artist brief.

Open call

The call for proposals is open to all Australian artists from 2 May to 27 May 2022.
