City festival seeks island artists
Artists who want to leave their mark on Hamilton are being asked to submit their ideas.
The City Arts Festival has issued a request for proposal for artists interested in adding “colour, culture and beauty to the streets and parks of Hamilton”.
The festival has installed more than 10 works by local artists over the last three years.
Three installations will be created for this year’s event.
A Festival spokeswoman said: “This year we are looking for artists to submit art installation proposals for three locations that have been identified — Till’s Hill, the driveway entrance at Par-la-Ville car park and the taxi stand wall by City Hall car park, facing Church Street.”
The spokeswoman said that a fourth artwork will be created by inmates at Westgate prison.
It will be placed at Cavendish car park.
The spokeswoman said: “The artwork will be created at Westgate and installed by our team at a date to be determined.
“I think we have all, at one time or another, seen various forms of inmate craftsmanship from wood carvings and furniture to canvases.
“There is a plethora of artistic talent at Westgate and we are proud to showcase that talent in such a public setting.
Those interested in submitting a proposal can obtain the paperwork from City Hall. The documents can also be found online at www.cityofhamilton.bm.
The deadline for submissions to be delivered to City Hall is 5pm on March 26.
