Public Realm

New high quality permanent and temporary artworks, specifically linked to heritage initiatives and reflecting local character, building skills of local people and demand for an improved environment

Since Transported was launched in 2013, we have worked with a number of different organisations and community groups to commission new public artworks in multiple locations across Boston & South Holland.  Take a look at this Google Map to find out where they are, and the story behind them.
