Sculpture Trail Art Acquisition

This first Expression of Interest (EOI) is to provide the initial suite of artwork and interpretative landscape features to stimulate visitors and create a process for sourcing further major sponsorship/funding. It is expected that we will undertake substantial acquisition in the first 1-2 years. We are seeking 3 categories of submissions:

Category #1- Donated Artwork and Category #2- Minor Artwork (up to $10,000)

Selection of the preferred artwork will take place in the 3 months following the close of this EOI.

Installation will take place across 2019.

Category #3- Major Artwork (over $10,000)

Assessment of submissions will take place in the 3 months following the close of this EOI.

Successful applications will receive an honorarium of $1,000 to further develop the commission into a concept suited to a designated site.

Installation will be based on sourced funding and a construction timeline negotiated with the artist.


All categories will be assessed by the Kangaroo Island Sculpture Trail Arts Acquisition Committee in-line with the Kangaroo Island Sculpture Trail Art Policy and recommendations made to the Penneshaw Progress Association for acquisition.

To Submit an Expression of Interest for All Categories,

  • An outline of the proposal/ artwork addressing the KIST guiding principles and criteria (found on our website).
  • The artistic vision and brief description of how the work will be experienced, addressing site requirements / preferences (close viewing, open long vista etc) and rationale.
