Calling all artists and creatives!
How would you like your artworks to be seen my the masses, on display at London Bridge Rail Station, London?
The Bee Friendly Trust has launched a nationwide competition to create a unique sculpture for the rail station, that captures the essence of the honey bee.
The sculpture, to be titled ‘The Bee’, is to be made primarily from recycled materials.
The main prize will be £2,000 with five additional awards of £50 each for schoolchildren.
The sculpture must be educational, innovative, engaging and high-quality with at least one moving part (which can be electrically, manually or naturally driven).
It will join the Bee Friendly Trust’s portfolio of unique pieces of bee-friendly art at rail stations, including Peterborough, Cambridgeshire; Frome, Somerset; Falmer, East Sussex; and Alresford, Essex.
An iconic focal point of the rail station concourse, ‘The Bee’ sculpture will raise awareness of the decline in bees numbers – one third of the UK’s population has disappeared over the past decade – and rally the public into taking supportive action.
