Furniture and Sculpture Art Installation

Leave a comment

Bovis Homes, the developers at Lime Road Botley, are looking to commission a series of two or three bespoke benches to be located at two of the open spaces across the development with the potential of commission a 3D sculpture to accompany one of the benches at the larger open space. The work should be a contemporary work of art. There are no preferred materials, although we feel this commission would lend itself to metal or stone and could incorporate lighting. The work should draw inspiration from local history. The benches must be functional. Our chosen artist/s will be selected on the quality of their previous work and their approach to this project. Artists will be shortlisted and interviewed by the Vale of White Horse Arts Development Officer, the Public Art Project Coordinator, a representative of the developer and a representative of the property management company.

Deadline for proposals: 23 March

Funding available: £29,000
