Art for Chocolate


The Cadbury factory in Bournville is looking for some Art for its new building:

The West Midlands’ best emerging artists are being given the chance to create works of art that will take permanent residence at Cadbury’s £30 million new office development in Bournville.

Three new pieces of art, including a sculpture, photographic set and wall-based painting, will be commissioned to coincide with the grand opening of the newly refurbished office space in 2008, which will accommodate more than 600 staff at Bournville.

Short listed artist applications will be selected through staff consultations and an expert judging panel. The chosen art work will reflect the new building’s commitment to celebrating the fusion of old and new, of “looking forward with heritage” to the next phase and future development of the iconic Bournville site.

The deadline is January 11th. All details here.
