Suggestions wanted for rail station artwork

Leamington Editorial 1st Jun, 2022   0

SUGGESTIONS are wanted to inspire the creation of a new piece of public art planned to be installed at Warwick Railway Station this summer.

These can be people, places, objects or things you associate with Warwick, for example, Warwick Castle, Warwick Mop and Guy of Warwick.

To submit your suggestions, people are asked to complete this short online form at www.warwickdc.gov.uk/warwickcolourpalette by Saturday June 4.

Warwick District Council culture spokesman Coun Liam Bartlett said: “This is a great opportunity for Warwick to showcase some of the many aspects of our market town that we are proud of. I do hope residents will get involved and contribute to this piece of public art, in the same way as they have to the Royal Leamington Spa Colour Palette artwork.”




The district council and artist Stacey Barnfield are being supported in delivering the Warwick Colour Palette with funding from the West Midlands Combined Authority and the support of Warwick District Creative Compact, Chiltern Railways, and Network Rail.

Stacey, from Birmingham, is developing the Warwick Colour palette artwork, which will be a companion piece to an artwork in the underpass at Leamington station, and another already installed at Birmingham’s Grand Central.


The works will be seen by thousands of rail users travelling to see the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games in July and August and will remain long after the Games have finished.

Warwick district will host the Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls at Leamington’s Victoria Park, and the Cycling Road Races on Sunday August 7 will start and finish on Myton Road near Myton Fields in Warwick.
