Below is the latest art idea to come from the community:
I am excited by some of the great ideas emerging and looking forward to the next art and design meeting. I was talking to a man (whose name I do not know) at the last meeting and he had the idea of a sculptural form of a wheel. I went home and the idea seemed a brilliant one….. I thought of the turnpike and a wheel could be suggestive of the wagon wheels that would have rolled past the old turnpike. it is also suggestive of the world, and of travel, and could be a structure that could include some words or poetry evocative of migration.
I think it would be really good to have a very beautiful sculptural piece to elevate the scrappy area coming into crescent/graham road. A huge (wooden?) wagon wheel could be beautified with inserts to make it sparkle – of either metal or recycled glass.
the wheel motif could be repeated with variations in the neighbourhood.
