The primary aim of the Open Art Display is to demonstrate the breadth of contemporary visual art and craft currently being produced by artists who are living, working and making a living through their artistic practice within the City of Plymouth.

By opening up a Council building, it aims to provide a free opportunity for Plymouth visual artists to raise their profile and showcase their work in an inspiring and iconic city centre location.


In devising a new Open Art Display, we hope to:

  • establish a transparent and representative open call and selection process
  • establish a selection committee made up of key Council Members from both parties
  • develop a series of programme of changing displays of original artworks by local artists for display in the main hall on the ground floor
  • provide an opportunity for artists to raise their profile amongst Council Members and the wider public, through display, promotion and events held in the Council House and Council Chamber
  • further develop display cases to allow 3D works / craft to be displayed (2014)
