Public Art Commission – University of Plymouth

Artists or design teams are invited to submit proposals for this new and exciting public art commission, with a project value of £21,000. The work is to be sited within the James Square location of the University of Plymouth campus. This environment has been recently landscaped and provides a large public piazza space, which is one of the main pedestrian thoroughfares for the University.

The concepts proposed should respond to the following creative pointers: Interactivity, Housing, Enterprise, Shelter. These themes can be interpreted very broadly and the work can embrace a range of sculptural media and approaches.
