Comment on an upcoming £ 66,000 piece of art in the business park
HAMPSHIRE residents are invited to give their opinion on plans for a new £ 66,000 artwork.
Residents of Nursling and Rownhams are encouraged to give their opinion before a new piece of art appears outside the entrance to Adanac Park, which is home to names such as Holiday Inn and the Ordnance Survey nearby.
The sculptural work of art will be located on the Brownhill Way roundabout, just outside the Lidl distribution center. The project was commissioned by Test Valley Borough Council and will be funded by contributions from Lidl developers.
The Schools of Nursling and Rownhams proposed their ideas to commissioned artist Martin Heron and a number of design options were selected.
Martin, originally from the East Midlands, creates works including drawings, paintings and sculptures that have “a strong physical presence” according to the artist’s website. The current proposal is to explore the murmurs of birds inspired by the contributions proposed so far. Residents and workers in the Nursling and Rownhams area are encouraged to participate in the open consultation and offer their views on the sculpture in the latest parish bulletin.
Chilworth, Nursling and Rownhams Councilor Phil Bundy said: “We are really keen to make the most of this opportunity and want to involve the whole community every step of the way. We are very keen to hear from the residents and encourage anyone in Nursling and Rownhams to get in touch. ”
