Wall2Wall 2017 opens today with an invitation to artists for mural designs for three large scale, high profile walls.
For the eleventh year, Wall2Wall invites artists to develop site specific designs for threes sites that connect people to place, enliven tired tagged locations. We invite you to share your skills and expertise with the wider community. Artists its time to strut your stuff!
The Wall2Wall Mural Competition offers a cash prize to each of the three finalists, and additional funds to pay for materials. Submit your design for a chance to be selected as one of the three finalists and become part of the Inner West Council area's growing public art collection.
The sites for Wall2Wall are in Rozelle, Camperdown and Summer Hill, and the judges are looking for designs that are meaningful in each location. The Wall Location Document provides a little bit of background material on each wall site, but artists are expected to visit the site, do their own research, talk to locals in each location – essentially finding their own way to design a mural specific to each site.
Prize amounts for 2017
1st place – $6,000
2nd place – $3,000
3rd place – $1,500
