We are looking for an artist to produce a 3D information plaque themed around Bonnybridge’s Roman and Industrial Heritage.
The Greenhill Historical Society, with the support of the Kelvin Valley and Falkirk Leader and HLF Rediscovering the Antonine Wall project plans to install a Roman/Industry themed 3D plaque to commemorate the town’s Roman Heritage. This plaque will be installed at the entrance of the Bonnybridge Community Education Centre along with other panels retracing Bonnybridge’s industrial past. The aim is to inform the public about local heritage. It will need to be resistant to weather and frequent touch as it will be used as tactile interpretation material for the community.
The 3D Cast Metal Plaque will be mounted on a roman inspired brick plinth.
For a copy of the project brief and further information please contact, Severine Peyrichou Antonine Wall Project Development Officer, firstname.lastname@example.org
