The City of Greater Bendigo wants submissions from artists interested in creating a new, unique, temporary artwork for display in Chancery Lane.

Chancery Lane is known for its quirky artwork with the successful artist to get the opportunity to create something on a section of wall at the Hargreaves Street end of Chancery Lane.

“Artists will be selected based on the quality of their ideas,” Bendigo council’s arts and culture co-ordinator Maree Tonkin said.

“We will be looking for something original and brightly coloured with great visual appeal that will enhance Chancery Lane and the central business district.”

The successful work is expected to be on display for between 12 and 18 months.

Chancery Lane is also home to “Ground Level” – an open program dedicated to paper based paste-up art which was established in 2009 by the council, La Trobe University, local property owners and Chancery Lane traders.

Bendigo currently has three legal street art spaces - Chancery Lane, Pennyweight Walk and the McIvor Road Skate Park.

Submissions must be lodged with council by October 3, 2016. For further information email m.tonkin@bendigo.vic.gov.au
