Site Works

City-commissioned artworks

Site Works is a collection of original, contemporary Australian artworks licensed for use on construction sites across Sydney. Site Works aims to:

  • provide artists with the opportunity to display their work on a large scale to a broad audience.
  • animate public spaces with temporary artworks
  • transform the visual impact of construction sites, bringing creativity into the everyday, making Sydney a more vibrant place to live, work and visit.

We called for artwork and design concepts from across the nation and received more than 500 submissions with 10 final artworks selected and licensed by the City.

The design files for these works are available to the construction industry, free of charge, to print and install on hoardings.

We will advise which of the 3 works is most suitable for your hoarding and supply you with the design files when your application is approved.
