Geraldton’s CBD is about to get a whole lot brighter with local artists being called on to help enhance bollards.
The City of Greater Geraldton has put a call out for local artists to create maritime or marine themed designs that will be used to decorate the bollards throughout the City centre.
In order to help make our community more vibrant, the top 10 selected designs will each receive $500.
With the original idea formed by the Mid West Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Future Leaders program, City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said he encouraged all local artists to get creative and make their mark on the community.
“This is a great idea from the future leaders of our City and what a wonderful opportunity for any artist to be seen and have their artwork displayed in a prime location,” he said.
“As part of the City’s Growth Plan which is in the final stages of drafting, we have put a big emphasis on the revitalisation of our City and also activating our CBD and making it a vibrant place to live, work and invest.
“And we know public art has received great feedback from our community in the past, so we look forward to seeing what our local talented artists come up with.”
Designs must be submitted as a high resolution PDF or JPEG with the dimensions of 750mm x 750mm.
Entries close 9am on Monday 3 October.
