Liverpool Chamber is launching a new award for Liverpool companies who have been supporters of the arts in the city.
John Entwhistle, a past Chairman of Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and Trustee of the Royal Academy has generously sponsored the competition. He said: “Many visitors to Liverpool during Capital of Culture year have commented on the diversity of the city’s culture, its renaissance and the unique collections in its art galleries and museums, as well as the city’s stunning architecture.
Liverpool Chamber is keen to use the momentum of Capital of Culture year to encourage patronage. We will present the award to the Liverpool business adjudged to have commissioned the most impressive work of public sculpture in Liverpool since 2003, when the city was nominated as European Capital of Culture.
Businesses that have commissioned original three dimensional artwork for public areas are invited to enter. The winner will be announced at Liverpool Chamber’s annual dinner on 20th November 2008.
