New Public Artwork for Augusta Park - Have Your Say

Test Valley is inviting Augusta Park residents to view and comment on designs for two new pieces of public art.

The Augusta Open Space initiative has hosted workshops, exhibitions, treasure hunts and walks where residents have contributed their ideas for the art and helped to shape the artists' brief. Plans are now progressing well and the designs will be on display at the Augusta Park Community Centre until 9 April.

The themes that stemmed from this work include the nature surrounding the site and the idea of growth and organic forms, the use of the land for farming and agriculture, and the desire to have a landmark piece of art and meeting place."

The Council has awarded the contract to Denis O'Connor and Bernie Rutter from Sculpture Works, who submitted a comprehensive proposal that showed their experience across the UK of creating large sculptural artworks combined with engaging communities in the creation of the work.

The sculptures are being funded from contributions paid by the developer, Taylor Wimpey, designated specifically for public artwork.

Please contact Faye Perkins by emailing fperkins@testvalley.gov.uk if you would like to share your comments about the designs.
