Description

Daventry District Council is seeking to select an innovative artist to commission a unique original feature on the A425 South Way/Abbey Street Roundabout in Daventry. This also should present an opportunity to signpost visitors to the town centre.

The roundabout where the public art will be situated is approximately 454.3 square metres with a perimeter of 75.6 metres and leads to the retail park, the Icon Centre, Daventry’s South March Estate and the local town centre.

The inspiration for the piece of public art would ideally come from historical relevance of the town and the successful artist is expected to undertake historical research in preparation for the submission.

The public art needs to be of very little, or no, maintenance costs and consideration needs to be given and evidence to materials used to ensure they are environmentally friendly.

This is a two stage process. Initial design submissions in stage one will be assessed by the Council from which a short list of between three and five will be selected to complete more detailed plans/prototypes and submit these for final consideration.

A consultation period possibly within Daventry Arts Festival or other consultation methods may need to take place to enable the local community to vote on their favourite artwork. This will be undertaken by both a consortium of Daventry Arts Festival and Council Officers.

Installation of the artwork must be complete by 14 December 2013.

The specification, detailed requirements and how to respond are contained in the document that can be downloaded here. Further details are available by contacting the officer shown.
