City of Hobart Public Art Commission
Urban Art Walls 2016
The latest public art project for the City of Hobart, Urban Art Walls aims to deter illegal graffiti through creative activation and provides an opportunity for creative practitioners at highly-visible sites. The project consists of four opportunities within Hobart’s CBD, with the City looking to engage four separate artists (or creative teams) to create an artwork for each of the four sites.
The project will contribute to the ever-changing face of Hobart by providing a new layer of contemporary artworks. The works will raise the bar for urban art in Hobart and will be vibrant, engaging and dynamic.
Using the city as canvas, the City of Hobart is aiming to make high-quality urban art a celebrated part of the city’s landscape.
Commission Value: A total of $24,000 has been allocated to this project representing a $6,000 commission per location.
