ARTIST CALL OUT – BURWOOD FESTIVAL INSTALLATION

bf

Expressions of Interest are sought for an artist to paint the wall or create a temporary artwork (chalk or paste-up) to fit with the Burwood Festival theme of 1950’s Rock ‘n’ Roll. Think Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, cadillacs, milk bars, juke box, big skirts, swing dancing, etc…

Burwood Council have installed a new stage in Burwood Park called the Pavilion (photos below) and an opportunity exists for an artist to create an installations on the  giant wall in the middle of the stage for Burwood Festival this year.

The measurements of the wall are 9m x 4m approx. The artwork doesn’t need huge amounts of detail because they will not be visible from far away, with people on the stages, so just large shapes and big designs.
Ideas – for consideration

Side One – a giant jukebox and sofa.

Side Two – a giant neon sign with a padded stool or guitar

Email examples of your previous work and a written idea to Asha.Pomery[at]burwood.nsw.gov.au to be considered. Artists will be notified by COB Wednesday 12 October.
