Voluntary Artist Brief

Sherwood Art Week and Sherwood Library are looking for an Artist or group of Artists to create a design/mural for the walls of the stairway in Sherwood Library.

We would like the design to be:

·         Welcoming and unique

·         Appealing to people of all ages

·         Lead people up the stairs – possibly following a trail

·         Bright, but not overpowering; pleasing to be eye, but not bland!

It would be great if the design could be reflective of the local community and uses of the Library in some way.


We are hoping for simple and effective 2D images on the walls above and/or below the handrail  in an appropriate, sustainable medium.  
Between 8th May and 14th June (a period of approx 5 weeks) we hope the selected artist will be able to meet with the Library Manager to discuss design ideas and arrange times to complete the artwork in time for the start of Sherwood Art Week on 16th June. 


There is a very minimal budget to cover the costs of paint of £100.  In keeping with all of Sherwood Art Week projects, Artists are giving their time and expertise on a voluntary basis.


Application deadline: Monday 7th May 2012    Completion deadline: Friday 15th June 2012.


Please send a brief covering letter and some images of your previous work to alisona.walker@nottinghamcity.gov.uk or send to Alison Walker, Library Mural, Spondon Street, Sherwood, Nottingham, NG5 4AB.   
Your application will be considered by the Library Manager, Alison Walker, and representatives from some of the library users.  If you would like to see the space or have any enquiries, please visit Sherwood Library during normal opening times.
