Warwick District Council is seeking suggestions to inspire the creation of a new piece of public art planned to be installed at Warwick Railway Station this summer.

These can be people, places, objects or things you associate with Warwick, for example, Warwick Castle, Warwick Mop and Guy of Warwick.

To submit your suggestions for this artwork, please complete this short online form by Saturday 4 June 2022. 

Councillor Liam Bartlett, Warwick District Council Portfolio Holder for Economy & Culture said:

"This is a great opportunity for Warwick to showcase some of the many aspects of our market town that we are proud of. I do hope residents will get involved and contribute to this piece of public art, in the same way as they have to the Royal Leamington Spa Colour Palette artwork."

The District Council and the artist are being supported in delivering the Warwick Colour Palette with funding from the West Midlands Combined Authority and the support of Warwick District Creative Compact, Chiltern Railways, and Network Rail.

Stacey Barnfield is an artist from Birmingham who is developing the Warwick Colour palette artwork, which will be a companion piece to existing and planned artworks in Birmingham and Royal Leamington Spa.

A Colour Palette art piece has already been installed at Birmingham's Grand Central, and Warwick District Council's planning team have recently approved the installation of a Royal Leamington Spa Colour Palette in the pedestrian underpass at Leamington Spa Railway Station.

The three artworks will be seen by thousands of rail users travelling to see the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games in July and August and remain at these locations long after the Games have left the district. 

The artwork will also form part of Warwick District Council’s CultureFest, which will showcase and celebrate the incredible arts and heritage venues, artists, and creatives in the area from Saturday 16 July to Sunday 21 August 2022. 

Warwick District will be providing the venue for the Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls at Royal Leamington Spa's Victoria Park, and the Cycling Road Races on Sunday 7 August will start and finish on Myton Road near Myton Fields in Warwick.
