Cabinet art is spreading in Greymouth
Chorus is again working with our Council to extend its cabinet artwork programme and is calling for designs from local artists.
Two further cabinets in Greymouth have been chosen for beautification and artists are encouraged to get their designs in.
The project, which sees some of their more frequently tagged cabinets painted in art works, has been very successful so Chorus has partnered with Grey District Council to extend its reach further.
These cabinets become works of art in the street, often telling stories about the communities in which they are located, and help to discourage tagging.
Council's Community and Events Facilitator Aza O’Neill will be co-ordinating designs and artists and says it is a great opportunity for artists to showcase their talents to not only the Greymouth community but also the wider world.
Requests for designs are now open and the winning design for each cabinet will be chosen from entries received.
Information can be found on Chorus’ dedicated webpage: https://www.chorus.co.nz/community/cabinet-art-programme
All finished art will be included on the Chorus website and will be considered for the 2021 Chorus Cabinet Art calendar, copies of which are sent around the world.
