Art ideas sought for City Arts Festival
The City of Hamilton is calling on artists to submit public art ideas for the City Arts Festival.
After a well-attended event last year, the City will again commission up to five artworks within its boundaries.
Artists are encouraged to propose ideas for areas such as Tills Hill walls at the top of Court Street, the Church Street wall at the top of Queen Street near the taxi stand, the bus terminal and other locations on city grounds.
The festival will be held on October 15 “exhibiting these permanent art displays while also representing the visual, musical and performance arts in a celebration of Bermuda's art culture”, a spokeswoman stated.
“This follows on from four public installations in 2015 where local artists Kendra Earls and Dennis Joaquin, Chewstick Community Arts Foundation, Nick Harney and Tiago Garcia and Bermuda National Gallery were commissioned for their work.
“The community continues to enjoy their work daily with the mural at the public bathrooms on Front Street and the lighting and painting of steps in Chancery Lane (above).”
Artists can download the RFP details at www.cityofhamilton.bm/media/media_links.php or e-mail email@example.com for more information.
Proposals must be submitted by August 24. Private sponsorship is also welcomed.
