Residents are being encouraged to have their say about new outdoor artwork that will arrive in King’s Lynn in winter 2022.
The EXPERIENCE project at Norfolk County Council is commissioning a series of dynamic new artworks to form the Norfolk Way Art Trail, an exciting outdoor public art trail spanning 250 miles of Norfolk, including Boal Quay in King’s Lynn.
The four shortlisted submissions for Boal Quay can be viewed at norfolkwayarttrail.co.uk. Residents have until midnight on 11 January 2022 to select their favourite.
Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, Heritage and Culture Champion at the borough council, said:
“When we walk into our parks and open spaces it’s good for our health and wellbeing. If there’s a special piece of art structure for people to view at Boal Quay, learn about, and possibly tell the story of King’s Lynn then it encourages people to take more of an interest.”
The selected artwork will be announced on the 25 January 2022.
This initiative is funded by EXPERIENCE a €23.3 million project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg France (Channel) England Programme. Led by Norfolk County Council, it aims to deliver innovative and sustainable growth via a new tourism strategy.
