In preparation of the upcoming Jubilee celebrations in Ipswich, we are inviting local residents to submit artworks that celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign that will be used in a window display on the Cornhill.
The “Grimwade Building”, on the corner of the Cornhill in the heart of Ipswich town centre, will have a large design across the windows with six “frames” that will each house an Jubilee-themed artwork from a local artist or Ipswich resident. With the theme of the Queen, the specially-designed window display will showcase local artist talent and provide the perfect backdrop for events happening at on the Cornhill.
The competition is open to all ages, however it will be split into two age categories; under 16 and 16 and over. Six lucky winners, three from each category, will be selected and the artworks will be printed and installed during the month of May ahead of the Jubilee Weekend in June.
Sophie Alexander-Parker, CEO at Ipswich Central and All About Ipswich comments: “We’d like to encourage anyone with some creative flair to get involved in this Jubilee art competition. The winners will have their work presented in a prominent location in the heart of Ipswich town centre, and the designs will support the wider set of events that have been organised to help celebrate this momentous occasion.”
