Fulton Hogan Construction (FHC) is seeking to engage the services of a suitably qualified and experienced First Peoples artist, artist collaboration and/or artist-led creative team to develop a significant piece of public art which will form an ‘urban marker’ at the intersection of Princes Highway and South Gippsland Highway. Greenshoot Consulting and ACCA are supporting the delivery of this project.
