Call for Creative Concepts for Entry Statement for the Margaret River Region

installationlocationVisual Artists and designers of various disciplines are invited to present a creative concept for an entry statement for the Margaret River Wine Region. Margaret River is a stunning, world-class wine region, capable of producing some of Australia’s finest wines. In the lead up to the wine region’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, key stakeholders have joined forces on an inspiring Entry Statement Project. The Entry Statement will be a large scale public art installation located at the northern entry point to the Margaret River Wine Region. Its purpose is to capture the imagination and provide the visitor with a symbolic gateway to the wine region, connecting them with relevant geographical information and guiding them along a captivating public art trail. The Project will combine contemporary public art with interpretive signage and digital media.
