Welcome Dorcas Casey!
We’re thrilled to announce that Bristol-based artist Dorcas Casey has been selected for a major public art commission at Welcome Building®. Since late 2023, Bricks Bristol has run an open call for all South-West artists to express their interest in developing this proposal. Those shortlisted were brought forward for an interview and presented their ideas to the Creative Commissioning Group, with Dorcas Casey awarded the successful winner selected to take her piece forward.
