St Vincent Gulf
The Friends of Gulf St Vincent Inc. are seeking to commission an artist(s) to create an interactive, permanent, iconic public art work, which will:
– complement the location and feel of Port Noarlunga Beach
– engage and educate the public regarding the reef’s health and future opportunities if it is well cared for.
The artist(s) are encouraged to exercise artistic expression and freedom on this project, however the work will need to explore and refer to the themes outlined in the Port Noarlunga Reef Artist Brief. At this stage, we have obtained funds to pay shortlisted artists a concept fee of $1000. The piece(s) will be installed in the entranceway to Port Noarlunga Jetty at the Witton Centre, Port Noarlunga (see image) and will complement the recent development of the Witton Centre upgrade.
