Publics Helped Needed for Weymouth Art Project
12:39pm 11th February 2013
Have you got an opinion on what kinda art you'd like to see at the Weymouth Gateway Site where the new Sainsbury's is gonna be?
We're being reminded we only have until next Friday to share our ideas with Dorset artist Andy Kirkby.
New Look and Sainsbury's are paying for the scheme which he'll design.
Andy was appointed to create the artwork in December after beating 38 other UK and international artists to the role.
The engagement period for the project began on 29 January 2013 and will finish on 15 February 2013.
The public can tell their stories and tales by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, mailing Alan Rogers, Bag 23, Weymouth College, Cranford Avenue, Weymouth DT4 7LQ or dropping their ideas at:
o Weymouth Library, Great George Street, Weymouth
o WPBC Offices (main reception), North Quay, Weymouth
o Famous Old Spa, 229 Dorchester Road, Radipole, Weymouth
An online blog has been set up at www.andykirkby.com where people can keep up to date with the project developments and contribute stories online.
A meeting has been organised for Andy to talk about his concept designs with the community and show how local stories have been incorporated into the work. The artist's concept designs will be made available for people to view at this session, which is open to all.
This will take place at the Famous Old Spa Pub, Dorchester Road from 5 - 7pm on Tuesday 26 February 2013.
