Sydney's city centre is about to be reshaped by light rail, pedestrian spaces and new public squares along George Street.
The City's role is to transform the public domain in and around George Street and as part of this project we will upgrade laneways throughout our CBD.
This will be one of the most significant projects in Sydney for generations. Creative art, comfortable seats and new trees will go hand-in-hand with better street and transport design, creating spaces people will want to spend time in.
Public art will play a major role in this transformation. Our City Centre Public Art Plan identifies five exciting opportunities for art in the city centre - and we're now putting the call out to local and international artists.
Artists are central to achieving this vision for our most important street, in the biggest city in Australia.
We want public art that complements the excellent design of Sydney's architecture. We want art that draws people into our city and prompts them to think of familiar spaces in new ways.
The City's new Curatorial Advisor Barbara Flynn will oversee the process of finding the right artists and bringing their vision to life.
Artists are invited to submit Expressions of Interest for two public artwork opportunities: the George Street Spine and the East-West Connectors, now.
The deadline for submissions is 11am Thursday 31 October 2013.
