Public art project – Artist opportunity in Keynsham

 

Keynsham Timeline – public art commission £5,300

Opportunity for artist

During community engagement for the Keynsham Clock Tower commission, it became apparent that there was a wealth of feeling, affection and desire to highlight the town’s history.  Residents wanted to draw attention to Keynsham’s significance for the wider area in times gone by, both to re-assert its heritage and to stimulate interest from both young and old in the future.  It has been agreed to chronicle this information in a ‘Timeline’, engaging schools and residents alike. 

The location of the Timeline will be on the Bath Hill side of the new town centre civic development, on the walls of the planting beds which are either side of the steps and walkway leading to the civic buildings.

We are now seeking an artist who is an experienced, professional illustrator.

The artist will work with the local history group, civic society, and seven local schools to create illustrations and designs for the nine Timeline panels.

The fee £5,300 covers:

  • artist’s time throughout the project

  • materials to produce designs

The cost of fabrication of the final panels is met from a separate budget.

The artist appointed will work with the community during late summer 2014, and deliver sessions in schools during the autumn term 2014.  The artist will engage children and young people to develop their ideas and use this source material to create nine panels of images to a consistent style and high standard of illustration.

The selected artist will work with a sub-committee of the Keynsham Arts Advisory Group, Keynsham Town Council, and Bath & North East Somerset Council throughout the duration of the project

clock towerRESULT OF THE KEYNSHAM CLOCK TOWER DESIGN

The Keynsham Arts Advisory Group is pleased to announce the results of the public consultation and vote on the three shortlisted designs for a clock tower in the new centre.

The votes were as follows:
Sebastien Boyesen 191 (48%) (Resin and colour)
Jon Mills 41 (11%) (metalwork)
Smith of Derby 149 (38%) (Stainless steel)
Spoilt Papers 10 ( 3%)
TOTAL 391
The Successful Artist's Design is therefore Sebastien Boyesen.

Votes were registered both on line and in hard copy. Votes were rigorously scrutinised to ensure that only Keynsham residents/business owners were included. Seven voting slips from residents outside Keynsham were discounted.

The artist will shortly commence work with the local community to 'fine tune' his design. Details of this process will be made available shortly both through the local press and our Facebook page. As always, minutes of committee meetings are available via Keynsham Town Council website.

Thank you for your interest and engagement in this project.
