Studio holder Gail Dooley was selected for a prestigious public commission last year. You can still see the sculpture, Tidal Shame, in Liverpool.
Liverpool BID Company, in collaboration with Liverpool Parish Church and city gallery and art organisation, dot-art, give local artists a unique opportunity to have their work showcased on The Liverpool Plinth – an empty platform which overlooks Chapel Street and the waterfront at the side of Liverpool Parish Church, also known as St Nick’s. As well as the fantastic exposure and publicity given to the artist and their work, they will also receive a £1,000 prize!
The Liverpool Plinth, in the mould of Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth, laid empty since the removal of Brian Burgess’s “Christ on a Donkey” several years ago.
First set up in 2018, each sculpture is chosen via an annual competition open to artists living or working in the north of England (North West, North East, Yorkshire and the Humber).
