Banyule City Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from suitably experienced artists to create a permanent contemporary public artwork at Olympic Park in Heidelberg West.
Olympic Park, located on the western fringe of the Banyule municipality, is an established sport and community recreation reserve with a significant history. Its origins are as a prominent training base for the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games and it lies beside the 1956 Olympic Village district.
The commissioned artwork will respond to the Olympic heritage of the site, build on existing community pride and identity and inspire users of the park by enhancing a sense of place.
This commission will be awarded to an individual artist or artist team that offers the best comprehensive approach to the artwork opportunity outlined within the detailed Artist Brief.
The call for submissions for the Olympic Park Commission is open to all Australian artists from 2 May until 27 May 2022.
To download the Artist Brief and submit an Expression of Interest, visit: https://www.eprocure.com.au/banyule
Submissions in response to this EOI must be lodged electronically only, via the “Tender Response” tab on Banyule Council’s e-Tender Portal.
