Sculpture or art installation?


A central piece of public art for the city

Inspiring Hillside are looking to commission an art installation or sculpture for Hillside Crescent gardens which ties in with the original Playfair designs of 1820/30.

We are looking to work with Edinburgh based artists to create this piece of artwork, and are keen to create a sound installation which connects with the artwork and ties in with stories of the history of the area. As part of the process, the group will liaise with a consultant with experience of delivering public consultations in order to handle the feasibility study, and to collect stories and ideas to incorporate within the art installation.
