Public Art Opportunities - Esplanade Dining Precinct

"…a place where vibrancy, barefoot chic melds with diverse cuisines and lifestyle activities."

Cairns Regional Council seeks a concept development quotation from Artists to acquire and commission up to three new public artwork opportunities, and one additional public artwork opportunity from up to three artists.

The concept development quotation will be part of stage one of four stages of the project. The suite of artworks will be a major nationally recognised public art commission, positioning the project as a key statement within the proposed new tropical landscaping and rejuvenated redevelopment of the Esplanade Dining Precinct.
