Bega Valley Mural Prize
The Bega Valley Mural Prize is a prize specifically for artists living and working in the Bega Valley Shire. An evolution of the BEGA ART PRIZE which has run in differing forms since 1992 with the support of the Bega Valley Shire Council.
The prize is open to artists working in all mediums, 2D, 3D, photographic etc, and will take the form of two artists’ works being reproduced at large scale to be presented as public murals on BVSC water tanks in locations throughout the Shire. Two artists will be selected by a panel of judges to have their works displayed and each will win $500.
The two water tank locations for 2017 are Bermagui and Bemboka.
This will add to the two murals already insitu at Eden and Merimbula. Each will become emblematic of the Bega Valley’s commitment to and passion for the visual arts, and both will be installed in December 2017 to take advantage of the high number of visitors to our area over the summer season. Each mural will then remain insitu for up to 18 months.
The prize will be managed by the Bega Valley Regional Gallery and is presented in conjunction with the Bega Valley Shire Council.
Call for entries is now open and will close on 7 November 2017 at 12pm. Entry will be $20 for non BVRG members and $15 for BVRG members.
