What are you doing this Autumn?
Wall art artists are sought to for a 60ft wall painting on Livery Street in a busy business district in Birmingham city centre. Colmore BID (Colmore Business District) is looking for artists to submit proposals for a vibrant new artwork to enhance a large part of Livery Street in the Business District. The chosen artist will be paid £7,500 for the commission, to be completed in the autumn of this year. Applications for this wall art 2019, must meet the theme of ‘green in the city’.
Mel Williams of Colmore BID says:
“Colmore BID is determined to improve the variety of public spaces in the District to enhance the area for visitors and workers to enjoy...This is a fantastic opportunity to create something stunning for Birmingham’s street scene and to produce an artwork with impact that will be seen by thousands of people every week...We’re looking forward to seeing what Birmingham’s creative community can create and working with the chosen artist on a long-lasting, powerful piece of art.”
The artwork will be in place for a minimum of five years and will cover a concrete wall approximately 8ft high and 60ft wide at the entrance to Livery Street by the junction with Great Charles Street Queensway. Located by a key entry point to the car park at Snow Hill station, it is also on the route of buses serving the city and for employees walking into the Colmore Business District from the Jewellery Quarter.
Jon Harris, integration and accessibility manager from West Midlands Railway, said:
“We are proud to serve the people of Birmingham and we know vibrant artwork is always popular with our passengers. We are very pleased to work with the Colmore BID and look forward to seeing the innovative, creative ideas from our talented artists...Travelling by train is more popular than ever and as the number of journeys continue to rise we are always looking for new ways to improve the passenger experience, including our £1 billion investment in train services across the network.”
The artwork needs to be finished in a painted or spray-can medium. Proposals, perhaps even graffiti wall art, are invited from commercial artists, students and graduates. The Livery Street Wall project is one of many improvements in the Business District delivered by Colmore BID.

September heralds the beginning of Autumn.
Angela Abraham describes Autumn in her poem:
‘I am a lover of the autumn, of the colours that are bold and homely, strong and yet a call to remember our Earth and all she gives in the harvest months. I could let my eyes soak in those scarlet maple-hands and the golden leaves that create more beauty than I'd ever dare ask for. It is the season of inner calm and a kindly stoicism etched in memories of joy.’
These words evoke visions of warm reds, browns and golden leaves displayed in a number of autumn tree metal wall art products that can be viewed online. These include:
These contemporary and stylish tree and leaf designs are finished in metallic autumnal colourful tones.
