Heritage Centre Sculpture Commission
Crowley’s is a new flagship building which will showcase the Land of Oak & Iron’s distinctive heritage. Set at Winlaton Mill in Derwenthaugh Country Park, it will be a high profile strategic tourism and enterprise hub, providing business workspace, a café, a shop specialising in local produce and exhibition space. Crowley’s will be an exciting, self-sustaining building of exceptional environmental design with a grass/wildflower sedum roof, located sympathetically in the landscape.
Proposals are invited from suitably qualified and experienced artists to create a ‘landmark’ piece at the entrance to the site with the purpose of attracting people from the road to Crowley’s. It will capture the public’s imagination and encourage visitors to seek out more information, increasing their understanding of the Land of Oak & Iron and what the area has to offer.
The deadline for responses is 9am, Monday 2 October; full details are available in the Crowley’s Sculpture Artist Brief. For further information please contact Land of Oak & Iron Partnership Manager Karen Daglish by email or 01207 524882.
