NEH FLYOVER MURAL – CELEBRATING THE UNIQUE EUCALYPT FOREST AND WOODLAND OF THE CENTRAL HUNTER
Singleton Council acknowledges the Wanaruah, Wonnarua people and their custodianship of the Land in the Singleton Local Government Area. We also acknowledge all other Aboriginal & Torres Straight Islanders who live within the Singleton Local Government Area and pay our respect to Elders past present and future.
Singleton Council is seeking expressions of interest from local and Hunter-based artists for the commission of a large-scale mural.
The Local Government Area (LGA) of Singleton, situated within the Central Hunter region of NSW, contains a significant portion of an ecological community that only occurs in this area. The eucalypt forest and woodland of the Central Hunter provide a range of ecosystems that contribute to our health and wellbeing, including cooling the local environment, maintaining our water cycle, improving air quality, and preventing soil erosion. This public art piece will be a signature work that celebrates the unique eucalypt forest and woodland of the Central Hunter region.
Located in Queen Street Singleton, at the entryway to the Civic Precinct, the landmark site sits under the New England Highway at the junction of the town’s entry into both John Street and the Singleton Civic precinct. The mural will become a cultural marker and serve as a gateway to the greater Upper Hunter area.
Please submit applications for initial shortlisting via the online link by 5pm, 8 March 2024. Please note late applications will NOT be accepted.
