The Chief Minister and Minister for the Arts, Jon Stanhope, has announced the shortlist of designs for the ‘major centenary artwork’ (pricetag $1 million) to grace the intersection of London Circuit and Northbourne Avenue.
- This is an extremely important investment in the heart of our city and it is crucial that we address all possible technical and siting issues before a final choice is made between the shortlisted works,” Mr Stanhope said today.
“The Government has therefore asked the artists for the three designs ranked most highly by the evaluation panel to address remaining technical, design and siting issues.
“Each of the three designs is quite distinct in terms of form and materials and unresolved technical and design issues have been identified with each of the proposals.
“Such fine-tuning is expected with works of this scale and significance and the Government has elected to give each of the three highest-ranked entrants the chance to resolve outstanding issues before a final decision is made.”
