Contribute to the new piece of public art on the rear wall of the Greyhound
The highly-regarded ANTIC group, who run around 20 pubs, mostly in south London, has acquired the Greyhound pub currently being refurbished at Cobb’s Corner. The group currently owns local pubs such as the East Dulwich Tavern in Lordship Lave, Westow House in Crystal Palace and Jam Circus in Brockley Road. It is hoped that the revamped Greyhound will reopen in October 2011 and the remainder of the development (housing and retail) in early 2012.

The developers of the Greyhound site in Sydenham have incorporated in their plans a bespoke design and installation of a piece of public art to cover the north elevation wall of the refurbished Greyhound pub. This wall will form one side of a public walkway from Spring Hill to the public space around the pub.
A competition to design the public artwork is being organised by the Sydenham Arts Festival (Visual Arts Team) in association with the Sydenham Society.
Entries for the competition are now on view at the Kirkdale Bookshop and there is a book for visitors to make comments. The entries will be judged by a panel in the next few weeks.
