Artists sought for high-profile Cockburn tower artwork

  • Artists are encouraged to submit designs for Cockburn Central Station tower display
  • Local community voted for new artwork to replace deteriorating Cockburn Faces
  • Open to works from a variety of media and following themes identified in public survey
  • Three works to be shortlisted for progress to next stage and put to a community vote

The McGowan Government is seeking expressions of interest from local artists to create a new piece of public art to feature on Cockburn Central Station's high-profile tower.

The EOI is open to works made using a variety of media, with the design expected to follow one of the themes identified in the recent public survey - native fauna, flora or landscapes, indigenous artwork or something representative of the Cockburn community.

In a community survey earlier this year, almost half of the more than 2,400 respondents voted for a new piece of artwork to replace the station's previous Faces of the Community display, which was removed last October amid safety concerns over its deteriorating condition.

Following the EOI period, three artworks will be chosen to progress to the next stage, with each of the shortlisted artists to be given $1,000 to progress their work to concept design stage. The three works will then be put to a community vote, with the most popular to be installed on the station tower.

Designs should be submitted in a high-resolution digital format and the artist should specify the medium in which they will deliver their piece.

Submissions are now open and will close on August 2. More information can be found here.
