Applications close 27 July 2016
Moonee Valley City Council are looking for a small group of artists to produce a vibrant set of works on 30 signal boxes throughout Moonee Valley that respond to the essence and character of the place. The selected artists will demonstrate a high standard of painting and an ability to produce works on time and in budget.
The aim of the project is create opportunities to showcase art by activating infrastructure objects within the urban environment. The small trail of already completed painted boxes on Puckle St has received a positive response from local residents and businesses, and has contributed to a sense of community pride and to reinforce MVCCs unique identity. The theme of this project is ‘Vibrancy in the Moonee Valley’ and the project title is ‘Signals’. Artists are encouraged to think about how their works could engender a sense place and provide engaging experiences on the streets of Moonee Valley.
Students and emerging artists are encouraged to apply.
