Ballina Shire Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from Northern Rivers Ngangbul artists to design and develop a series of public artworks within the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport precinct, including the new Airport Boulevard entrance.
Ballina is the traditional land of the Nyangbul people of the Bundjalung nation. This public art, which will welcome people arriving at the airport, will visually represent the local indigenous landscape values, Country and distinctive landscape character of Ballina Shire.
There are two options available to the artist or artist team:
Proposed locations for the public art include the medians or road verges of the new Southern Cross Drive and Airport Boulevard roundabout, the airport terminal entrance, and pavement areas within the airport precinct.
The budget for the commission is up to $15,000 (excluding GST) for the production of a single artwork that can be used by Council for a variety of purposes, or up to $92,000 (excluding GST) for the production of a suite of artworks including design, fabrication and installation.
Installation of the artwork is proposed to be completed by 1 January 2022, however this will be subject to change depending on the artist/s program and timeframes.
