Architecture course lecture 10th February 2017
Director, New Art Centre, Roche Court
Sea Music by Anthony Caro is the only site specific, public sculpture in the UK by one of Britain’s greatest sculptors. It was commissioned at the invitation of then Borough architect Tom Roberts, and given by Caro to the people of Poole. Situated on Poole Quay, it was unveiled on 22 November 1991 is now twenty-five years old.
Exposure to the seaside environment means that the sculpture is now in urgent need of repair. The restored sculpture will be unveiled on Saturday 13 May 2017.
This lecture coincides with the restoration and the first of two exhibitions at Poole Museum on Sea Music. It also relates to the current collaboration of BA (Hons) Architecture with Poole BID and the current exhibition of student work at The Lighthouse, MAP 2016.
