The first ideas for a new public art scheme in Weymouth are due to be unveiled.

A selection of Concept Designs for the Gateway site - on Mercury Road - is going to be presented by Dorset artist Andy Kirkby.

Local residents and school children had their chance to shape the project by contributing their ideas during workshops, where they shared family stories and memories of the seaside town.

Andy's initital pieces of art for the Weymouth Gateway scheme will be shown for the first time at the Famous Old Spa Pub tomorrow (Tuesday 26th February) from 5pm to 7pm.

An online blog has been set up here where you can keep up to date with the projects developments.
