ArtDrive Geraldton

‘ArtDrive’: The City of Greater Geraldton has just opened up a proposal for a new arts project (27 April – 6 June entry dates). This is the link from the city website http://www.cgg.wa.gov.au/play/what-s-on/artdrive.aspx

It is a project to create a drive by rural art tour.

The route will include the Brand Highway through Greenough, Walkaway, Ellendale, and Mullewa. Prizes are on offer for six of the artworks that have entered the event, valued at $5,000…

Some sites to view for major artworks in urban cityscapes or more rural environments (these sculptures or painted walls would generally cost much more than a $1000 to make):

Recent FORM Public 2016 artists examples:
Millo, urban artist from Italy left Perth after participating in FORM in WA, and went on to China: The Pudong Shanghai mural shows a boy lying between a number of buildings, which Millo says is inspired by the contrast between the modern contemporary city and the human being. ‘We live in a world of concrete but inside we are kind of soft,’ says the artist.
