Gladstone Region Art on Fleet: Pop Up Digital Public Art

Following the success of the 2015 Gladstone Region Artist Windows project with fourteen local artist installations featured in twelve Gladstone Regional Council venues, and 2016 Gladstone Region Art in Parks with twenty ephemeral artworks featured in seventeen regional parks, we are calling on the local creative community to submit a digital art proposal for the 2017 Gladstone Region Art on Fleet project.

Hosted in conjunction with the Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), Art on Fleet provides an opportunity for locally created artwork to be exhibited ‘on the move’ across the length and breadth of the region, printed on purposed vinyl decals, featured on identified Council fleet vehicles.

Whilst there is no specific theme for the project, successful submissions will take into consideration the people, landscape and environment of the region, and will keep vehicular purpose in mind. Get to know the activities of your Council fleet, what would you create for the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum van, the region’s Street Sweepers or the Parks & Environment truck?

All are invited to submit their proposals to Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum Curator, Jo Duke by  4pm Tuesday, 7 November 2017 with a copy of your artist CV and written Quote. Project budget allocations include: Artist Honoraria and Artist Mentor Honoraria.

If seeking an Artist Mentor Honoraria, please identify your mentored artist with your proposal, including supporting documentation. Decisions will be advised  Monday 13 November 2017 and accepted submissions will be installed by local service providers during the two weeks 4 - 16 December 2017, intended to continue on display until April 2018.

This public art incubator project, provides an opportunity for artists and community to come together, strengthening cultural infrastructure locally, discovering new audiences and celebrating the unique heritage and character of the place in which we live, work and play.
