Entries for Shoreham Port’s Community Art Project have been coming in thick and fast! The Port launched the competition in April and artwork of all shapes and sizes has been submitted. The Community Art Project is the first of many initiatives the Port is embarking on with Southern Rail in order to enhance Southwick Station. The station offers a busy location to showcase the winning artwork, which will connect with a broad range of locals and commuters using the station.
The theme of the competition is Shoreham Port but the content, shape and style of the work is open to individual interpretation. Any medium can be used, provided it will be possible to take a digital copy of the entry, as original artwork will be available for return to the artist after the competition. The top three pieces of artwork will be selected and copies will be displayed at Southwick Station. Copyright for the work will remain with the artist, but Shoreham Port reserves the right to use the digital copy of the artwork for future publicity purposes without payment. The artwork should be submitted to Shoreham Port, located at Nautilus House, 90 – 100 Albion Street, Southwick, Brighton, BN42 4ED.
Rodney Lunn, Chief Executive said “I am delighted to see so many of the local community taking part in the competition and I am very impressed with the creativity and standard of work. Each entry has its own story to tell and captures different dimensions of the Port’s vast estate.” There is still plenty of time to enter, the competition is running until 31st October 2012 and the Port hopes to receive many more entries!
Sam Bryant, Sussex Community Rail Partnership, commented “I am delighted that Shoreham Port’s Community Art Project has been so well received. Station Partnerships make a real difference to the local community and I hope that many other business follow the example set by Shoreham Port and take positive steps to work with the community.”
