Dawson Road Mural Project

Your Design HERE!

Posted in Uncategorized by Ema on August 24, 2009


Visual artists who reside in the Manukau area are invited to submit proposals for an innovative and colourful two-dimensional mural for the stage structure in Ferguson Oaks on Dawson Road, located in the vicinity of Tupu Youth Library in Otara.

Artists are encouraged to create a contemporary work that addresses both the interests of the community and the context and history of Otara, celebrating the cultural diversity and dynamism of the area. The design must also be sympathetic to the structural limitations of the site and relate to its public, park environment.

Artists are required to submit the following information:

1. A written proposal outlining the design concept. This should include:

  • Artistic vision and ideas behind the design (maximum 1 x A4 sheet)
  • Details of the paint colours required
  • A suggested plan on how the work will be painted within the two-day timeframe.
  • Details of any ongoing maintenance issues

2. A maximum of 6 supporting drawings or visuals illustrating the design (digital or hard copy formats are accepted). Hard copy drawings/visuals must be on sheets no larger than A2 (42 x 60cm) in size

3. A current CV, including designs of any previous art commissions undertaken.

How to submit

The deadline is Thursday 3 September 2009.

Artists may send their applications by email to: Ema.Tavola@manukau.govt.nz or deliver hard copies to Nicole at Fresh Gallery Otara or mail them to Fresh Gallery Otara, c/- Manukau Arts, Private Bag 76917, Manukau 2241

Artists will be informed of the short list by Thursday 24 September. The winning design will be selected by a public vote and announced by Thursday 29 October.
