Pakuranga Rotary Artwork - expressions of interest

We are looking for expressions of interest from artists interested in creating a public artwork in Pakuranga.

About the opportunity

We have partnered with Pakuranga Rotary to co-commission a new artwork for the Pakuranga Rotary Walkway at Bramley Reserve in Pakuranga.

This artwork will celebrate 50 years of Pakuranga Rotary's service in the area, which will be commemorated in March 2020. It will be enjoyed by the local community, as well as the many visitors to the Rotary Walkway.

We are looking for expressions of interest (EOI) from artists who are interested in the area and this opportunity.

We will contact the selected artist to develop a concept for a standalone artwork and deliver it by February 2020.

About the site

The Pakuranga Rotary Walkway is a very popular walking and cycling path that stretches 9km from Prince Regent Drive in Farm Cove to the Pamure Bridge. The path weaves past the Pakuranga Sailing Club and offers great views of the Tāmaki River.

The artwork itself will be located on Sanctuary Point in Sunnyhills, Pakuranga. This will be the first artwork in a public art trail that Rotary hopes to establish along the walkway.

What we are looking for

We are looking for an artwork that is site-specific, responds to the area and draws on the theme of service that underpins Rotary's work.
It should be:

  • iconic, unique and enduring
  • inspired by the natural landscape and surrounding area
  • inspired by Rotary's vision to service the local and national community
  • to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pakuranga Rotary, and acknowledge the work that they have achieved honouring the local community's past, present and future.

How to apply

We welcome expressions of interest from individual artists and collectives.

Apply online by midnight Thursday 28 February 2019.
