Artists interested in submitting an Expression of Interest can download and read the full artist brief below.

The total value of the commission will be up to £48,000 (including VAT). This figure must also allow for all necessary design, treatment of surfaces, installation, erection and all fixings to secure the feature etc. There will be a six month timeframe for delivery of the artwork.

All queries should be directed via email only to [email protected]
