Water Cultures Public Art Competition

A NATIONAL competition will be held to design a centrepiece artwork for The Lake district at The Ponds.

The Water Cultures public art will act as a showcase for the area’s environmental work, responding to the Lake, its engineering and water management functions as well as its recreational role in the new park.
Landcom development director Carmen Osborne said public art at The Ponds had enlivened the suburb.
“The company expects to attract a high-calibre of special artistic talent from the environmental art world,” she said.
“The Ponds is an excellent example of how art has been integrated into the community to support and reflect its water management and sustainability practices.”

Landcom will select and remunerate up to six artists to develop concepts for the Water Cultures artwork that uses sculptural or installed elements, customised engineering and design elements, sustainable technologies and surface treatments to animate the lake and its foreshores.

The winning concept will be fabricated and installed as part of the landscape development.
Expressions of interest are sort from experienced public artists who would like to be short-listed for this project.
The closing date is October 25 for expressions of interest.
