London Borough of Barking and Dagenham invite applications from artists based in the UK to design a major new sculpture of Bobby Moore, to be located in Barking Town Centre, London.
We are open to proposals from a variety of practitioners with a range of experience and approaches to sculpture. We encourage artists to put forward contemporary proposals that depict a figurative rendition of Bobby Moore, with a conceptual playful approach to reflecting his personality and relationship to Barking. The commissioned work will be a 1.5 scale life-sized sculpture of Bobby Moore, to be cast in bronze.
We will be shortlisting three applicants for consideration, and offering £2,000 for the three shortlisted artists to develop their proposals further for the final stages of selection.
