Call For Artists: Anglers Country Park Mural

Anglers Country Park is seeking to commission an artist to design and produce a mural to be painted on brick outside the Visitor Centre.

The mural should be visually and thematically in keeping with Anglers Country Park. This could focus on Anglers Country Park’s heritage in nature conservation and the work of Charles Waterton, or the wildlife that inhabit the area. The full content of the mural will be developed in discussion with Anglers Country Park once the artist has been selected.

The successful applicant will receive £5000 to design and install the artwork. The artist must provide their own materials and an anti-graffiti coating must be applied to the final artwork, inclusive of the cost.
