We are inviting proposals from artists who would like to create new, or submit existing artworks for permanent display in one of our busy corridor areas. We are looking for three pieces in total. They are to be displayed in the same area so must complement each other.
In addition, it should meet the below criteria:-
- Artwork should be 2-D, wall-based and provided to the printer as a digital file.
- Artwork should evoke interest, improve mood and enrich the environment.
- Ideally the artwork will be contemporary, bright and have an uplifting effect on all people using the hospital

Due to our stringent infection control and fire safety regulations, we have been asked that artwork in this area is printed on to Altro-whiterock digiclad (http://www.altro.co.uk/Altro-Whiterock-Digiclad). This has a professional quality with durable coating and is glued directly onto the walls. This method will ensure minimum collection of dust and the surface can be easily wiped clean.
