Up to £35,000 per sculpture (including artist fees, engineer fees, public engagement activities, design, materials, fabrication and installation).
A high quality 3km active travel path has been created along a disused railway line. Two locations have been selected for artistic sculptures.
Both sculptures will be visible from the road and will become iconic beacons to the path. They will be exciting, reflecting local history and heritage where possible with an opportunity to create elements of ‘play’ with the sculptures. We are, therefore, seeking skilled and experienced public artists. We are particularly seeking artists who have experience in building large external sculptures. The sculptures will be of a very high standard with very robust designs requiring minimal maintenance.
As part of this commission the chosen artists will engage with local communities to influence the direction of the design. The build and installation are part of the commission.
Artists are asked to express an interest in the project at this stage by submitting information as detailed below.
The artwork will be commissioned by Sustrans Scotland.
If you would like to be considered for this commission please send the following:
After shortlisting, selected artists will be invited for interview at the Sustrans office in Haymarket, Edinburgh in April (tbc)
