Stonewater launches the George Blunden Public Art Prize

For the first time, Stonewater is launching its own public art prize to give talented artists from all over the country – both established and emerging – who are producing ground-breaking and innovative artworks the chance to deliver a series of pieces that can sit proudly on its development schemes.

The winning artist will be commissioned to create public art for five of Stonewater’s developments and awarded the prize of £75,000 for their creativity, project management and scoping out the pieces. Each commission will be allocated a separate budget for delivering and executing the public art, covering costs such as the fabrication, build, transportation and materials to create the public art.

The George Blunden Public Art Prize is free to enter and open to artists of all disciplines, with entries closing on Friday 6th August at 11:59pm.–public-art-prize/
