Amateur and professional artists are invited to play a creative role in an exciting new project devised by Lincoln BIG.
Excitingly, the Lincoln Business Improvement Group is working with public art expert Wild in Art on a Lincoln IMP Trail for 2020, and it is already attracting companies and organisations keen to sponsor individual characters.
The Trail, which will feature 30 Imp sculptures, promises to be a top attraction for everyone from local families to overseas visitors next Summer and we are eager to make it as eye-catching as possible.
Artists created some fantastic designs for our Lincoln Barons’ Charter Trail (2015) and Lincoln Knights’ Trail (2017) sculptures. Now we are calling for creatives to step forward again and devise some fun designs for the Lincoln IMP Trail characters.
Lincoln BIG is working with the Education Business Partnership, The EBP, which will be engaging with schools as part of its education programme and participants will have their own medium-sized sculptures.
The Lincoln IMP Trail provides a fabulous opportunity for artists to showcase their creativity. All designs will be carefully selected by our sponsors.
Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Sarah Loftus said: “This is a brilliant opportunity for artists to demonstrate their creativity and win the chance to have their work featured in a trail which is expected to create worldwide interest.
"Artists can really let their imaginations run wild because they have a wide brief to work to. We are welcoming designs in a huge variety of art forms, from traditional to digital media, fine art, illustration, graffiti, mosaic, embroidery or metal work.
“Overall, we are looking for designs which will add drama, fun and a wonderful flourish to our sculpture trail – making it irresistible to everyone and a major talking point!,” added Sarah.
In addition to partnering with Wild in Art and The EBP, we are also working with charity partner St Barnabas. The hospice will be the beneficiary of monies raised when the individual IMP sculptures go under the hammer in a bumper auction after the public trail finishes, along with the Lincoln Creates Fund.
