The Arts & Science Sculpture Commission brings together arts and science through public art in the brand new campus parkland, the Green Heart, at the University of Birmingham.
After an open call, four artists – Andrew Gillespie, Hipkiss & Graney, Intervention Architecture, Juneau Projects – were selected to develop their ideas for the sculpture responding to the theme of arts and science in diverse ways, from the histories of scientific innovation at the University to biodiversity and climate change.
Each artist has created a small scale model of their sculpture, which will be on display in the Green Heart, next to Muirhead Tower, on the very spot where the final sculpture will be installed in Spring 2020.
