Minutes:

46.1 Synthia Griffin introduced the report starting on page 117 of the Agenda.

46.3 Councillor Simson was informed that:

 

·       The artist who proposed the Angel of the South was turned away due to lack of experience with large public art pieces, and hadn’t thought in detail about site specificity.

46.4 Councillor Brown was informed that the timeframe for the welcome signage would be Autumn 2022.

 

46.5 Councillor Childs was informed that the 1930’s Art Deco column on the A23 would be given consideration in future for complimentary artwork near to it when there is more budget.

 

46.6 Councillor Rainey commented that public art is beneficial in many ways to the city and that the Public Art Strategy was a positive thing.

 

46.7 Councillor Osborne commented that the public art scene is prominent in Brighton including the murals, coloured houses, lighting next to the Brighton Station, and other visitor attractions, and asked if there was any resource in the Council to engage more with residents and have more briefings.
