Artists to make a statement for Clive

Artists to make a statement for Clive

Artists are being asked to submit designs and concepts for ‘entry statement’ artworks to greet travelers at the main northern and southern entry points to Clive.

One of the driving forces behind this project originated from the Clive Community Plan, which outlined an action to partner with Council to create a grand entrance to Clive.

The artworks will be commissioned as part of a joint initiative between the Hastings District Council and the Clive Community Group, funded partly by the council through the Local Area Entry Statements Strategy with the remainder to be raised by the Clive Community Group through fundraising events and grants.

It is anticipated that the design submissions will reflect local elements within the Clive community.

Clive residents will be asked to help choose the preferred designs, which will be located on the northern side of the Clive River Bridge, opposite Farndon Park, and south of the Mill Road intersection.

Deputy Mayor Cynthia Bowers said the project would contribute to a sense of community identity for Clive.

“These works will be something to catch the eye, something to hint at the creativity and friendliness Clive is known for. It will be very interesting to see what sort of design ideas come in for an exciting and high-profile project like this.”

Tony Loversuch, Chairman of the Clive Community Group, said it was great seeing real progress being made on this joint Council-Community project and is looking forward to seeing the submitted designs and taking the project closer to completion.

This project is likely to be the first in a series within the District, with other communities such as Whakatu and Camberley also identifying a desire to create similar entry statements for their communities.

For artists interested in submitting a design, please see the Expressions of Interest document available from www.hastingsdc.govt.nz/projects/entrystatements

Design submissions must be received by 26th September 2008.
