Artists sought for Launceston loo mural

City of Launceston Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from Tasmanian artists to design and install a mural on a public toilet building in the CBD.

Mayor, Matthew Garwood said the Council was eager to expand its portfolio of street
art across the municipality, in line with its Public Art Strategy.

“This project follows a similar street art initiative at Kings Meadows late last year, and the Expressions of Interest process we’ve run in partnership with Vibrance for murals at the Paterson St East Car Park,” Mayor Garwood said.

“We’re seeking expressions of interest from emerging and established mural artists who would like to leave their artistic mark on a prominent CBD location.

“We’re hoping artists will take advantage of this opportunity and put forward some ideas that will entertain us, intrigue us, challenge us, and tell a story about Launceston.”

Expressions of Interest for the Criterion Place mural (building pictured) have opened on Council’s website, and will closes at 5pm on Friday, 22 March.

The Council expects that the successful applicant will install the mural in May.
