Ramsgate Arts curates Vattenfall commission

We’re delighted to announce that Patricia Wilson Smith has won the commission from Vattenfall to create a piece of art to decorate the glass lift in the company’s new flagship base on Ramsgate harbour.

Ramsgate Arts worked closely with the Vattenfall Offshore Wind Farm to create a brief for the commission and promote it to artists living or working in Thanet. Over 20 artists submitted ideas and 9 were shortlisted. Work is underway now on the artwork, which should be completed in April and ready for its launch around the end of the month.

This is the first time Ramsgate Arts has curated a project of this nature, and we hope that we can take on similar projects in the future in order to ensure we can develop opportunities for our local artists.
