The Crieff Cowches - Deadline: 20 May 2019 at 17:00

A shout out to Artists to submit designs for Highland Cow sculptures (Cowches!) to be part of an interactive Arts trail during the summer of 2019 throughout the town of Crieff and surrounding area.

For ten weeks this Summer, the streets, parks and public spaces of Crieff and its surrounding landscape will be adorned by life sized Highland Cattle shaped as benches in a project known ass – The Crieff Cowches!

Crieff Succeeds, along with its partner charity Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance, is now calling on professional and budding creatives to pitch their ideas to design and paint a Cowch.

This call to artists is open to anyone interested in participating, with a brief that welcomes designs in any art form – traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti to mosaic.

The key requirement is that each unique design adds drama, fun and a creative flourish to the Crieff Cowches. The successful artists’ work will adorn a Cowch sculpture and be part of Crieff’s first ever art trail.

Crieff Succeeds will award commissioned artists a fee of £800 to be paid on the successful completion of the finished artwork. The closing date for designs to be submitted is 20th May 2019, with the successful designs commissioned by June before hitting the streets in July 2019.

Location: All Scotland
