Boscombe art trail links the sea front with shopping street. In the interactive map and gallery has been displayed location of seven sculptures with description, photos and night effects.
The art trail was designed by a Dorset-based artist Andy Kirby who won £74,000 commission to design the project. Ideas were put forward by local residents and influenced by the artist’s style.

Councillor Anne Filer commented on the project: ”The visually stunning, innovative sculptures reflect the local environment of Boscombe, its history and its future.”
A local shop owner Mark Cribb, said about the project: ”The arts trail is a fantastic way of linking the beautiful recent improvements on the seafront with the high street.”
Gallery: day and night effects
The gallery bellow show that some sculptures have a blue ‘glow’ at night. Sculptures are linked through a colour and use of common elements and materials. Water and marine life theme is evident in many of the sculptures such as diving helmet, a boat and sunfish.
