Chorus has worked with our Council to bring an opportunity for local artists to showcase their talents with the Cabinet Art Programme.
Ten cabinets have been chosen for beautification across the Coromandel, with two in each Community Board area and artists are encouraged to submit their designs before submissions close on 8 October.
A trial in Auckland demonstrated that cabinet artwork decreases the frequency of tagging.
These cabinets become works of art in the street, often telling stories about the communities in which they are located.
“This is our first year working with Chorus on their Cabinet Art Programme,” says our Mayor Len Salt. “And we’re excited to work with the local community to bring creativity to life on our streets.”
Requests for designs are open until 8 October and the winning design for each cabinet will be chosen by a Council panel from entries received.
To apply, email Rebecca Lacey at our Council.
