MAYOR of Bristol Marvin Rees has unveiled six pieces of art that have been loaned to the council to be displayed at City Hall, one of which was produced by artist Jasmin Nowak Fearon in conjunction with Cotham School.

The works have come from across the city and have been created by local artists and members of the community.  Each piece will be hung and displayed in different locations throughout City Hall that are accessible to the public, and these spaces are being managed by registered community art charity, Artspace Lifespace. The announcement is the latest move to bring art into the building with the side vestibules having been opened up for local community and cultural groups to display their work earlier this year.

Speaking of the art project, Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees said: “This project is about ensuring that City Hall as a public building really represents the communities it works for.  By giving people space inside the building to display their creativity I hope that people will be able to feel greater ownership of the building and remind us of the many communities that make up our city.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has come forward to donate their work so far.  This is just the first stage of this project and I hope eventually to be able to have every ward in the city represented by a piece of artwork.”
