Public Art Commission: Plym Valley & Saltram Countryside Park Heritage Trail

Deadline: 17.00 hrs Monday 24 September 2012
Commissioners: Plymouth City Council
Project Value: £45000 - £50000
Project Partners: Plymouth City Council/National Trust

Plymouth City Council is looking to commission new artwork for a trail that will connect the Plym Valley and Saltram Estate in the city.

The project is part of the wider Plymouth Natural Networks programme that will deliver new green infrastructure in the city developing links between Dartmoor National Park to the north of the city via the Plym Valley to Saltram Estate and Plymouth Sound to the south.

The Heritage Trail will form a key component of the Plymouth Natural Networks Programme. Artists, Designers, a group or an organisation of practitioners are invited to submit ideas using any number of creative and material approaches to the entire Heritage Trail. We are looking for imaginative, eye-catching and creative solutions that will help to animate, provide legibility and added interest to the new and improved routes planned throughout the area. The artwork will need to highlight and interpret the area’s character, history and natural environment in a unique and original way.
