Consultation for Public Art, Hertford

Written by Ella Carty

On July 21, 2012

A bold design for contemporary sculpture by Maxine King is one of seven proposals under consideration for new public art in Hertford.

Funded by Sainsbury’s, the commission for original artwork close to the new supermarket at Hartham Common, Hertford is expected to combine innovation and originality with an understanding of the local environment and history.

Proposed location for public art in HertfordMaxine King, who created Chadwell Way Sculpture Trail – a series of 31 site specific bronzes in East Herts – has developed a design concept that not only takes into account the natural, built and historic environment, but is also a public artwork for everyone to enjoy.

Maxine’s proposal for giant steel rabbit ‘Hops’ refers to The Warren; a steep, densely wooded bank that runs along one side of Hartham Common and home to generations of rabbits.

The design of the sculpture, in terms of scale, material and installation, also considers the impact of vandalism and theft on public art and seeks to reduce these risks substantially.

The public consultation will be held at Hertford Theatre cafè/bar on Saturday 28th July, from 10am to 6pm.
