Wrapt in Mugul, Queensland’s first highway and rainforest exhibition is calling for expressions of interest from central Queensland artists.
The Wrapt in Mugul project will place five large scale artworks along a 30 km stretch of the Bruce Highway between the small townships of Bororen and Miriam Vale.
A further ten artworks will be placed in the rainforest setting at the base of Mt Colosseum or Mugul as it is known by the Traditional Owners the Gooreng Gooreng people.
Wrapt in Mugul founder Lee McIvor said having these installations along the Bruce Hwy is a major win for the region.
“This is the first time such an arts project of this scale has been undertaken.
“It is thanks to the support of Arts Queensland’s Arts Showcase Program that we have been fortunate enough to access serious funding to make the project a reality.”
One of the aims of the Wrapt in Mugul project is to provide employment opportunities for local artists and raise their profile.
The project also aims to create a cultural tourism destination that encourages visitors and locals to stop and spend some time exploring the two small townships.
Ms McIvor said close on 4,000 vehicles travel that section of the Bruce Highway each day.
“It is the perfect setting to raise the profile of our artists and promote the creative talent we have in the central Qld region.”
Expressions of interest are being sought from artists throughout central Queensland and the state.
