Artworks on the horizon

UNE has commissioned two local artists to complete artworks of the Boilerhouse that will depict the building prior to its transformation into a Children’s Discovery Space.

Early in 2018, UNE Discovery asked five artists to make a submission for a proposed artwork in response to the Boilerhouse building.

UNE’s Vice Chancellor and CEO, Professor Annabelle Duncan, made the final decision after a formal review, recommendation and selection process.  Artist, Isabelle Devos, was awarded the art commission based on her submission and will produce an artwork looking at the exterior of the building in her vibrant simplified realism style.

UNE Art Collection will fund an additional artwork by artist, Eloise Roberts, who will produce an interior view of the building for the University.

We congratulate Isabelle and Eloise on their selection and we look forward to seeing the artworks at the end of the year.
