Toi Pōneke Arts Centre is inviting artists and designers to submit a design for a public artwork on the East building at 61 Abel Smith Street, pictured below left.
An artist’s fee of $5,000 is available to support one proposal from an arts/design practitioner that fulfils the criteria outlined in the project brief.
Proposed artwork will
- respond to the site including the architecture of each building and existing signage, colours, texture, etc.
- consider local Māori whakapapa and history
- reflect the activity within to give Toi Pōneke a clear creative identity and act as an interface between residents at Toi Pōneke and the public
- be a visible link from the Cuba - Abel Smith Street intersection.
