Brief Description

As part of the new Northern Quarter project, the competition is set to deliver 13 art installations that celebrate the town’s unique heritage and exciting future. A £15,000 design contract has been established for the selected artist. The works of art are scheduled to be installed towards the end of the year (2018), as part of Telford’s year-long 50th anniversary celebrations. The aim is that they will help to enhance visitors’ experience of Telford town centre, adding more variety and interest to a highly visible external view of the centre. The art, which will be unique to Telford, will be located along the northern elevation of the Northern Quarter, which is directly visible from Lawn Central as well as the pedestrian footbridge that brings people into the town centre from the office area and the train station. It’s also on the pedestrian route between Ash Grey and Red Oak car parks.
