Public Art Commission at Wolverton Mill Park, Milton Keynes

Deadline: February 5, 2014, 12:00 pm

Milton Keynes Council wishes to appoint an artist to design and make artwork within an established area of green space known as Wolverton Rec (Recreation Ground) in Wolverton, Milton Keynes. The Council envisages that the commissioned artworks will have elements of interaction and playfulness, and although the entire green space offers potential locations for public artworks it is thought that the new play area might provide an excellent focal point for a project.

The successful artist will have experience of working with local communities as well as professional design teams, and be able to research the unique character of the site. They must have experience of creating permanent pieces of public art, and a suitable level of understanding of relevant Health and Safety legislation.

The total budget available for this commission is £77,000, excluding installation.

Deadline for submissions: 12:00 noon on Wednesday 5th February, 2014

Please contact Richard Hollinshead - Public Art Officer via email at [email protected] if you have any queries which are not answered in the brief (note Richard Hollinshead works for Milton Keynes Council on Wednesdays and Fridays).
