The new Town Hall Station will be at the civic heart of Melbourne and a gateway to the city with connections to Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, and City Square making the artwork a significant and high profile cultural marker viewed by thousands of commuters daily.

Town Hall Station’s large vaulted public concourse below the main City Square entrance presents a significant opportunity for a leading artist to create an exceptional artwork and an enduring artistic statement for Melbourne.
