The Keith Hayman Award for public art has been part of the biennial Sheffield Design Awards for a number of years. Named in memory of Keith Hayman, a keen artist and SCT Trustee, it is presented to the artist judged to have contributed most to the enhancement of Sheffield’s public realm in the two years preceding the award.
In celebration of Sheffield Design Awards becoming a registered charity, a retrospective event will be held this autumn (more details coming soon) at which the Keith Hayman Award will be launched as an annual prize judged, as in previous years, by the SCT Trustees.
If you know of a piece of new public art, mural or sculpture, please get in touch and let us know. All suggestions will form a longlist from which a shortlist will be taken and put before Trustees and a specially invited advisor from the city’s artistic community.
To be eligible for longlisting, the work needs to be sited within the city boundary and have been completed in the last two years.
