Overview

The City of Parramatta invites artists and artist teams residing both domestically and internationally to submit their qualifications to be considered for the Parramatta Square Public Art Projects. This opportunity is for two large-scale sculptures in the Parramatta Square public domain, which is currently under construction.

Project Background

Parramatta Square will be the public centerpiece and the civic seat of government for the City of Parramatta local government area.

Parramatta Square’s public domain will be a lively and engaging connection between the world-class buildings that surround it. It will also be an important gathering place, destination, and transit area for the many people who move through Parramatta on a daily basis.

Project Description

Within the public domain design there are two public art zones, one at the eastern and the other at the western end of the public domain. These have been designated for the delivery of two key nodal large-scale sculptural artworks. The footprint for each is approximately 5m x 5m. Electricity and data connectivity will be provided.

Project Budget

The budget for each of the artworks is approximately $2.2 million. This is inclusive of all artist's fees, as well as associated expenses for design, fabrication, insurance, transportation and installation.

How to Apply
