Public Art Prospects
With Geoff Hogg, Mark Holsworth, Louise Lavarack, Dean Sunshine, Laura Phillips and Aiofe Kealy
Sunday 6 December 2015, 1 pm – 3.30 pm
Jewell Station, Brunswick
What are the prospects for public art in Moreland? This panel discussion will look at the interests of artists creating work in the public sphere and how Council can respond to new and emerging trends in public art. Is Moreland’s public art program providing the right platforms? Are public commission briefs too prescriptive? Come hear industry leaders reflect on these issues and have your say.
This forum will be followed by the announcement of the 2015 MoreArt Awards.
City Sculpture Walking Tour
Book your own public art walking tour with Mark Holsworth, author of Sculptures of Melbourne. Public sculpture in Melbourne has changed dramatically, not only in style but in materials, locations and numbers. Public sculpture both decorates and tells the history of the city. See a selection of sculptures from 18th to the 21st century, from the historic to the comic, from memorials to the play sculpture. Learn about the sculptures, the sculptors who made them and the people of Melbourne who live with the sculptures.
