Liverpool BID Company and dot-art are seeking a new artist from the north of England to have their work installed on The Liverpool Plinth. The sculpture will stand at the side of Liverpool Parish Church, overlooking Chapel Street and the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront. 

The artwork will be the third sculpture to be installed on the Plinth. It is part of an annual project with Liverpool BID Company working alongside the Parish Church, known as St Nick’s, and the city gallery and art organisation dot-art, to enrich the public spaces in Liverpool’s Commercial District as part of the BID’s Public Art Strategy. 

The previous two sculptures to adorn The Plinth Liverpool include Sam Shendi’s Split Decision and Tony Heaton’s Gold Lamé. 

The Open Call is available to any artist working primarily in sculpture based in the north of England to submit existing work. The application process opens on Monday 13 January and closes on Sunday 22 March 2020. The selected artist will also receive a £1,000 prize.
