Merriwa Silo Public Art Project 

Expressions of Interest close Monday 10 July 2017

The Upper Hunter Shire Council is calling for Expressions of Interest from experienced artists for the development of a high quality, large scale public artwork/mural on the Silos situated in Macartney Street, Merriwa.

It is hoped the public art project will give the Merriwa community its own tourism product, having the capacity to reinvigorate and foster a sense of pride within the community and further, provide a significant tourism and economic boost to the area.

The concept for the work should focus on the themes of the local community including its historical and/or agricultural ties. For more details please visit http://upperhunter.nsw.gov.au/your-council/media/public-notices/expression-of-interest-merriwa-silo-art.aspx
