Artists wanted for Paintworks public art commission

Phase 3 Public Artwork

Crest Nicholson and Verve are seeking to commission an Artist or Artists to develop new public works as part of the new Phase 3 development of Paintworks.

The artist commission will reflect objectives of the Paintworks public art programme and Bristol City Council’s Public Art Policy and Strategy, that seeks to ensure the inclusion of Artists in the development of the built environment.

The public art Commission offers an opportunity for a professional Artist or Artists to design develop and deliver permanent public artworks for the site.

The Commissioners are looking for visually engaging artworks that animate the public spaces. This opportunity is open to Artists working with media that is suitable for outdoor, robust, permanent artworks that require minimum maintenance.

This is an exciting opportunity for an Artist or Artists to have their work feature as part of a progressive development project.
