As part of the Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”), Mirvac will also provide pro-bono support to the School to assist in maximising the School’s commercial potential.
The Mirvac Art Leadership Program has commenced with work on commissioned artworks at 90 Collins Street, Melbourne, and discussions are currently underway in regards to a potential artwork for the 200 George Street development in Sydney.
Mirvac’s CEO and Managing Director, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, said, “Art is a part of the rich fabric of society and plays a pivotal role in the creation of our city's built form. This partnership presents a great opportunity for Mirvac to access current and future Australian artists through a well-regarded organisation to enhance the look and feel of our assets.
“Working closely with the National Art School broadens our engagement with the community – a key component in our This Changes Everything sustainability strategy - while providing grassroots support to emerging artists, and is also supported by Mirvac’s recently formed innovation program.”
The Director of the National Art School, Michael Snelling said, “The National Art School is excited to be working with Mirvac to provide opportunities for our students and alumni. The partnership promises to showcase the exceptional talents of the National Art School artists in an environment that benefits the place-making initiatives of Mirvac.”
