CALLING ALL ARTISTS – RAMSEY NEEDS YOU!
Do you want to be Ramsey’s next celebrated community artist and have your work permanently displayed in the Mooragh Park? Yes? Then read on!
Expression of Interest sought for new artwork project in Mooragh Park Ramsey.
Ramsey Town Commissioner’s shelter art initiative on the Mooragh Promenade was hugely successful, gaining acclaim and wide-spread media coverage both here and across.
We are now looking to expand this programme into the second phase, proving art installations on the 9 shelters in the beautiful Mooragh Park. Offering visitors an opportunity to take a stroll and admire the talents of Island artists.
Ramsey Town Commissioners are seeking proposals from artists for murals or one-off artworks to be painted onto the walls of the Mooragh park shelters.
Your artwork would not necessarily need to cover the entire shelter but could be one to three stand-out paintings on the walls of the shelter. This provides flexibility and potential for multiple smaller projects or collaborations to cover a full shelter. That said, if you have a grand vision for a large installation, we want to hear about it.
For artists who don’t wish to undertake a whole shelter mural, collaboration or scaled-down works can often reduce associated costs, thereby being more affordable for private individuals and businesses to support financially.
Importantly, the form/detail of the artwork is for the artist to decide, but should speak to common themes reflecting the surroundings of the Mooragh Park and the positive influence the location has on the lives of everyone who visits and enjoys it, these themes being any one or a combination of;
- Ramsey/Isle of Man
Funding for the project will be sought from a variety of sources and there will be no requirement for artists to individually seek funding from bodies such as the Arts Council. However, if an artist can provide private funding, then this will be considered at the discretion of Ramsey Town Commissioners.
If this project interests you and you would like to be considered, please apply in writing to Ramsey Town Commissioners at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include the following details with your expression of interest;
- A concept drawing of the proposed artwork
- Estimated cost
- Any other pertinent details
Expressions of interest should be submitted by 5pm on Monday 5th September 2022.
Join this initiative, and help us enhance the beautiful public open space for all to see and enjoy for years to come.
