Richmondshire District Council

Call for artist

We are looking for an artist to design, create and install an iconic piece of land art to celebrate the visit of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships to Yorkshire in September.

The temporary artwork will be installed close to the Buttertubs Pass near Hawes. It will need to depict the district, be bold and large scale so it can be captured as part of the television coverage of the races.

The championships visit Richmondshire three times during the nine days of races – the men’s junior road race sets off from Richmond on Thursday September 26, then the men’s elite races passes through on Sunday, September 29. The land art is to coincide with the last day of racing.

The council has set aside £5000 for the commissioned piece of work. Interested artists should send in their brief by the 31 July 2019.

Further details can be found by downloading the artist's brief.
