Help Design A Work Of Art For Weymouth

Stones 2

2:21pm 29th January 2013

Your input's needed to create a piece of art to go in the new Weymouth Gateway site.

Dorset Artist Andy Kirkby's having a meeting at the Old Spa Pub on Dorchester Road tonight.

You're being encouraged to go along and share your stories and local history which could be used to help design the art scheme.

The project's being funded by fashion retailer New Look with support from Sainsbury's who will both be on the new site.

Tonight's meeting (29 January) is at the Famous Old Spa Pub, Dorchester Road, Weymouth between 5-7pm. Free snacks will be provided by the landlord of the Spa for those attending.

Andy Kirkby said: "I'm looking forward to emphasising the 'public' in this series of public sculptures in so much as I'll be interested to hear any stories or mythology that relates to the site or wider area - especially those that are not in the guide books."

Cllr Ian Bruce, Brief Holder for Tourism and Culture at Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, said: "The council is very keen that local people get involved with this artwork and I very much hope lots of people will go along on Tuesday."
