Adelaide Riverbank transformation continues with lighting, art installations
The transformation of Adelaide’s riverbank is set to continue with requests for proposals issued for new interactive lighting and art installations.
The State Government and the City of Adelaide are calling for an experienced contractor to design a low-energy lighting installation along 700 metres of the southern bank of the River Torrens.
The permanent installation will enhance the natural beauty of the precinct between Morphett Street and King William Road, while also improving safety along one of Adelaide’s most popular destinations.
A similar installation highlighting significant trees along the northern bank of the river was switched on in December, stretching 660 metres from Montefiore Road to the King William Road bridge.
Emerging local artists are also being given a chance to create artwork for the high-exposure Northern Promenade works of the Festival Centre redevelopment.
Submissions are being called for an opportunity to design and produce a vibrant and engaging 10-metre hoarding façade for the redevelopment facing Elder Park.
Space will also be allocated to promote the successful artist or artists and their work.
The successful proponent will fully design and construct the lighting installation.
Request for proposals close on Wednesday 22 March and construction is expected to start mid-year.
Further information is available here.
A budget of up to $25,000 will be made available for the hoarding façade installation and to cover costs including artist fees, materials and equipment hire.
The emerging artist opportunity closes on Tuesday 21 March.
