Cabinet Art is Coming to Dunedin

Cabinet Art is Coming to Dunedin

Dunedin, 30 May 2014 – Chorus is bringing its telecommunications cabinet art programme to Dunedin as part of an initiative to have some of their more frequently graffiti-hit cabinets dressed in art works. These cabinets become works of art in the street, often telling stories about the communities in which they are located.

Dunedin City Council Policy Planner Dr Glen Hazelton says Chorus will pay $1000 for each cabinet, which includes the design, painting and application of graffiti guard.

“The graffiti guard is supplied and materials, such as paint and brushes, are paid for on top of the fee.

“Artists are provided with instructions on how to prepare the cabinet and graffiti-guard it once the painting is finished, with payment made once the work is satisfactorily completed.”

This year, Chorus is looking for proposals from Dunedin artists for a number of cabinets around the city. The locations are: Brockville, Caversham, Kaikorai, North Dunedin including the University and Polytechnic area and South Dunedin. A full list of cabinet locations is available on the DCC website.

The DCC is assisting to collate the proposals and organise consent for the works. It is inviting proposals from interested artists around the city.

To be considered to work on a cabinet, please supply an A4 hand sketch of your design, clearly define which cabinet your design is for, include a short description of what the design means, and a brief biography of any relevant experience including visual material.

These proposals should be sent to Dunedin City Council by 19 June 2014.

Chorus will make the final decision on which art works it chooses, consult with the adjoining landowner, and engage the artists to do the work. It is envisaged that the work will be completed as soon as possible.

A list of the Dunedin cabinets and entry details can be found at www.dunedin.govt.nz/cabinetart

All finished art will be included on the Chorus website. Existing murals can be seen at www.chorus.co.nz/cabinet-art

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
