Deadline for city artwork suggestions extended

The Corporation of Hamilton has extended the deadline for artists to submit suggestions for artwork to go on display in the city.

City Hall had requested that artists submit their suggestions for the 2022 VIVID Public Art Initiative by March 31.

But a spokeswoman confirmed yesterday that submissions will be accepted until Friday, April 15.

The programme has seen the installation of more than 20 pieces of public art throughout the city in the past seven years, including murals, mosaics and the Chancery Lane lights and artwork project.

Sideya Dill, the corporation’s marketing co-ordinator, said: “This year we are seeking local artists to submit proposals for the design and execution of large-scale street art or sculptures to appear in Hamilton that will colour the city with Bermuda’s culture and rich heritage.

“The VIVID public art initiative is committed to working with Bermuda’s local art organisations as well as independent artists to help curate and implement public art installations, contributing to its mandate to be a vibrant city.

“Public art elevates the city to more than just a place of commerce and consumption. It allows an avenue for accessible engagement with the built environment and increases the social capital for our community.”

Artists interested in submitting a proposal can view the RFP documents, outlining the scope of the project, on the city’s website here. The submission form for the RFP can be found here.
