Artist sought for ‘large-scale artworks’ at new Salisbury River Park

AN artist is being sought to create ‘large-scale artworks’ at Salisbury River Park.

The search has been launched by Studio Response, in partnership with the Environment Agency (EA), for a commission opportunity as part of the arts programme for the new venue.

The River Park is an important regeneration project for the city, creating a new green corridor of public open space along the river Avon while delivering essential flood risk mitigation.

“We seek to appoint an artist to creatively investigate the design and installation of large-scale street artworks to the Coach Park WC block in the city centre,” Studio Response and the EA said.

“The work will enhance the building aesthetically and also make a statement about its adjacency to the River Park, and to signpost and welcome people accordingly.

“The commission, therefore, is for a local artist to create artworks on the building that draw inspiration from the wildlife and natural context of the River Park.”
