Liverpool Chamber of Commerce is keen to maintain the Capital of Culture momentum and recognise Liverpool’s business community’s long tradition of arts patronage with the launch of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce’s Arts Award.

At the launch of the award at the city centre’s independent Dot Art Gallery, Liz Lacy, a key member of the Chamber’s Arts & Culture Committee said:

“The award is designed to encourage and reward patronage of the arts in Liverpool, recognising Merseyside companies who invest in artistic endeavours.

“We aim to encourage business to commission original artwork and continue Liverpool’s tradition of patronage of outstanding public artwork beyond European Capital of Culture Year.”

The Chamber has secured four of the most respected authorities in the city’s arts scene as judges for the prestigious event, Christopher Grunenberg, the director of the Tate, Lewis Biggs, director of the Liverpool Biennial and Rayahn King, Fine Art Curator, National Museums Liverpool and a representative from Arts & Business will asses the artworks.

The award for the most innovative piece of commissioned artwork will be presented at Liverpool Chamber’s annual dinner on the 20th November at the BT Liverpool Convention Centre.

It will be presented to the Liverpool business judged to have commissioned the most impressive work of public sculpture in Liverpool since 2003 and has been made possible thanks to the kind sponsorship of former Chamber Chairman and Trustee of the Royal Academy, John Entwistle.
