SA Power Networks Mural Call Out

SA Power Networks and Country Arts SA are looking for an artist from regional or remote SA to create a new and original artwork.

SA Power Networks, in partnership with Country Arts SA, is pleased to announce a new public art opportunity for artists living in regional or remote South Australia.

The selected artist will have the opportunity to create a new artwork on an interior wall at SA Power Networks’ Adelaide office in Keswick.

SA Power Networks has been a major supporter of regional arts and artists through Country Arts SA for 22 years. In celebration of this on-going relationship, SA Power Networks, through Country Arts SA, will commission an artist living in regional or remote South Australia to create an original artwork on a wall of the SA Power Networks Adelaide office.

Two finalists will be selected and receive a fee of $1,000 each to develop and present their design proposal. One of these works will be selected to go to final production.

The final selected artist will have a total budget of $8,000 to cover all costs associated with fabrication, delivery and installation of the work, the artist’s fee, travel and living expenses, and the preparation and presentation of the final selected work.

Country Arts SA Chief Executive Officer Steve Saffell said: “We’re pleased to be working with SA Power Networks in this extended way to support regional artists and showcase to a metropolitan audience the talent we have
across South Australia.”

SA Power Networks Sponsorship and Events Manager Kylie Kerrigan said: “For 22 years we’ve been working with Country Arts SA and we’re excited to present this opportunity to artists in regional and remote South Australia. We look forward to seeing what ideas will be brought to the table to make a somewhat plain space flourish!”

Artworks can be 2D or 3D but must not protrude from the wall any more than 150mm. The artwork must be suitable for public display in a corporate environment and for a range of audiences.

The selection panel for the SA Power Networks Commission will be:
– Kylie Kerrigan, Sponsorship and Events Manager, SA Power Networks
– Anthony von der Borch, Communications Coordinator , SA Power Networks
– Lauren Mustillo, Visual Arts Program Manager, Country Arts SA

Applications close by 5pm, Friday 1 March 2019.
