Artists

A canvas that’s out of this world!

We’re looking for local, regional and national artists, designers and illustrators to create inspiring and engaging artwork that will make our Rockets soar.

From now until 30th November 2020, we are calling for artists to create dazzling designs for the Rocket sculptures and submit them to us. 

We are looking for inspiring and engaging artwork. We welcome designs in any art form – traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic, embroidery to metalwork. Whatever the art form, we’re keen to add drama fun and a creative flourish to Rocket Round Leicester. We can’t wait to embark on this creative and innovative voyage with you!

All the submitted designs will be shortlisted before the final artwork is hand-picked by our sponsors. Successful artists are then commissioned to apply their designs to the sculptures.

Any artist is welcome to submit designs – whether established, or just starting out; from the Leicestershire area or further afield.

Following the event, these public art sculptures are auctioned to raise funds for LOROS Hospice.

With our artists involvement, we look forward to presenting a creative showcase in summer 2021 which will educate and inspire the public about the extraordinary enjoyment of art and creativity.

THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO UNLEASH YOUR CREATIVITY, SKILLS AND INNOVATION ON THE BIGGEST CANVAS IN TOWN!
