Public Art Project needs Volunteers

Locate – Investigate – Map

Creative Wiltshire Public Art graphic imageA project to locate, record and photograph public art, namely artwork made by an artist, arts practitioner or craftsperson and located in publicly accessible spaces and places in Wiltshire. Public artworks are vulnerable to change, whether it be through environmental damage or vandalism, or through redevelopment of an area in or around it.

At present very little is known about the whereabouts and extent of public art in the county and the role it plays to enhance the places where we live and work.

A call for volunteers…

The Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre is looking for  individuals and groups to help gather data on public art in the community such as location of the item, its condition, what is known of it and a photograph of it in situ. Data collected as part of the project will be made available in the Local Studies Library at the  History Centre with images deposited in the Historic Photograph and Print Collection. The images will then be pinned to the Know Your Place site http://www.kypwest.org.uk to map their location geographically.

To register your interest contact localstudies@wiltshire.gov.uk and help support public art in the places that matter to you.
