Featherstone Gateway Public Art Commission

Deadline: June 8, 2015, 12:00 pm

Beam is working on behalf of Featherstone Town Council in Wakefield, West Yorkshire to undertake the management of a new public art commission to be situated in a prominent location at Mill Pond Meadows, a key gateway to Featherstone, commemorating those from the town who gave their lives during the First World War.

The vision is to create a significant and long lasting commemorative artwork for Featherstone, which encourages people across the generations to stop, look, think and remember. The artwork evokes the past, but utilises a contemporary and forward-looking design, perhaps incorporating lighting design. The Artwork makes a significant contribution to the Mill Pond Meadows area – encouraging residents and visitors to take contemplative walks through the tree lines and enjoy the landscape of this emerging place and resource for the people of Featherstone.

The deadline for registering expressions of interest is: Monday the 8th of June 2015, 12 noon.
