Aims

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.

Objectives

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)
