Public Art Commission, Merthyr College

Website: http://www.celfwaith.co.uk/commissions/college-square-taff-trail-commission

Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council wish to appoint an artist or artists to create public artworks for two recently created public spaces in front of Merthyr Tydfil College. This commission is for two sites, College Square in front of the new College building and the nearby Taff Trail that runs alongside the river Taff. This project has been developed as part of a recent Public Art Strategy for Merthyr Tydfil. The strategy builds on the wider town centre improvements and seeks to enhance the public realm by creating engaging and relevant public art projects. The aim is to encourage a wider use of the town’s public spaces and to improve the appearance of key sites within the town centre, encouraging visitor dwell time and giving residents a sense of pride in their town. This project is jointly funded by the Arts Council of Wales and Merthyr Tydfil Borough Council with a budget of £55,000.00. The commission will commence in August 2016 and should be completed by July 2017.
