Public Art Commission – Discover Wynyard Information Board

Feature Image

Waratah-Wynyard Council (WWC) is seeking an illustrated information board to be designed and fabricated by a Tasmanian artist.

WWC will install the illustrated information board in a prominent location in the town. The illustrated information board is intended to communicate information about the Wynyard area, enabling a visual dialogue between the community, artist and viewer.

The scope of the area covered on the illustrated information board should be limited to the area close to the town centre linked with existing walking paths, including Gutteridge Gardens and the river walk to Fossils Bluff, the Wynyard Wharf and foreshore area, Camp Creek, “Nurses Retreat”, Old Bass Highway to Bruce’s Café/Doctor’s Rocks.

The area on the illustrated information board need not be to scale but should reflect proportionality. The content could identify:
a. Historical figures or sites of note
b. Geographic and biological sites or areas of importance
c. Native flora and fauna
d. Infrastructure (including accessibility), such as walking tracks, public toilets, parking or playground facilities
Artists should request this information from the manager Community Activation to include in design.

Please refer to the artist’s brief document here [1]

Artists are encouraged to discuss their applications with the Manager Community Activation before submission.
