Help develop a new piece of public art for Royal Leamington Spa
Warwick District Council is looking for your suggestions on people, places, objects, or things you associate with Royal Leamington Spa. The information you provide will help shape the development of a new piece of public art, planned to be installed in the pedestrian underpass at Leamington Spa Station, which will be seen by 1,000’s of people during this year’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The Royal Leamington Spa Colour Palettes art piece will be made up of number of large colour swatches with each one representing and celebrating one of seven themes relating to the town:
- Arts and Culture
- Sports and Leisure
- Nature and Natural Environment
Your suggestions will be used to inform the creation of the artwork, which will showcase what the town has to offer people visiting Royal Leamington Spa, for example, the Royal Pump Rooms, Royal Spa Centre, Jephson Gardens.
To submit your suggestions, complete this short online form at www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/RLSColourPalette/ by Saturday 12 February 2022.
All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of representatives from Warwick District Council, Royal Leamington Spa Town Council, Warwick District Creative Compact and the artist Stacey Barnfield.
Royal Leamington Spa’s Colour Palettes are planned to be installed before the Games come to the district this July.
This piece of art is being created with funding from Warwick District Council and Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), with the support of Royal Leamington Spa Town Council, Warwickshire County Council, Network Rail, Warwick District Creative Compact and Heart of England Community Rail Partnership.
Royal Leamington Spa’s Colour Palettes will form part of Warwick District Councils 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.
Stacey Barnfield is a regional artist who is developing the colour palette artwork to feature in the pedestrian underpass at Leamington Spa Station. He has developed a similar colour palette at Grand Central at New Street Station.
