Bert Williams Leisure Centre Public Art Project, Bilston, West Midlands

Bilston Craft Gallery and Wolverhampton Arts and Heritage invite proposals from artists and designer-makers for three significant public art commissions to be sited in the new Bilston Leisure Centre, currently under construction. In total a sum of £64,000 is available in commissions for this 14 million pound build. The Bert Williams Leisure Centre is a key building project in the Bilston Urban Village regeneration programme. It is the first major new build of the redevelopment and a highly visible focal point adjacent to the Black Country Route (A463).

Wolverhampton City Council wishes to commission public art to enhance the appearance, meaning, and function of the Leisure Centre and community involvement with this new facility. Creative proposals in a range of media are invited for three distinct commission opportunities.

The deadline for applications is 9am Monday 1st August 2011, with shortlisting and selection completed by late August.  In compiling proposals applicants should be aware that the commissions must be completed for installation by December 2011.
