Art Commissions

Ideas FactoryNUA allows students and staff at the University to undertake fine art commissions as part of their coursework or as individual artists.

Recent projects include a set of six paintings based on local themes, installed in the offices of a financial business based in Norwich; a 3D installation in a private house; a sculpture situated in the grounds of a new eco-housing development; and a public art installation in a new business quarter next to the River Wensum.

These are all original one-off pieces, with prices negotiated between the University and the client, and a schedule of work agreed.

“The standard was incredibly high.”
