Public Art Commission: Pettman Crescent mural Plumstead

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is looking for a budding artist to design a beautiful mural to cover the spiral wall of Pettman Underpass in Plumstead.

The design should represent the spirit of Plumstead - the community, its diversity and landmarks. It should also include the hashtag #PositivePlumstead. The winning artist will work with local residents to transfer the design.

Councillor Denise Scott-McDonald, Cabinet Member for Culture, Creative Industries and Community Wellbeing said:
"We want everyone to feel proud of where they live. Plumstead is going through a major transformation. A new £11.2 million library and leisure centre is coming along for the local community with improvements to the wider area around Plumstead Station. The Council is also working hard to improve the high street environment. This is a chance for residents to make a major contribution to the #PositivePlumstead campaign."

The artwork must be transferred on to the Pettman Underpass in late August – early September 2017. An official launch will take place in early September. The exact date is yet to be confirmed. The artist chosen must be available to supervise/install their design and attend the launch. The total fee offered is £2,800 (inc.); this includes the artist's fee, design, materials and installation. Download full information here (pdf)

The closing date for submissions is 5pm, Wednesday 9 August 2017.

A draft or finalised outline of your design.  The artwork should be sent as a JPEG or PDF if sending via email or on A4/A3 paper if by post, with your full name, address and telephone/mobile contact number(s).
A narrative description of your proposed design and process (up to 500 word), including details of how your concept relates to the site and the Plumstead community.  A CV and/or link to previous work.
