About The Birmingham Big Art Project
Eastside Projects are the commissioning agents, responsible for curating the process and artwork.
The objective of the Project is to commission and install an iconic public art that is high quality, innovative, permanent and low in maintenance for Birmingham that will gain international recognition and put the city on the world’s cultural map. With community engagement, in line with culture and wellbeing, this iconic artwork hopes to become an important heritage for future generations of Birmingham. The anticipated cost for the project is £2 million. The overall goal of this project is to encourage citizenship and civic pride amongst the city’s diverse communities through public art.
The new work will be completed in line with the development of HS2.
