Spalding Public Art Trail

The Spalding Public Art Trail is part of Transported’s On Your Doorstep programme – public realm enhancement projects where artists, designers and sculptors are commissioned by local groups, residents and organisations to improve public spaces, making them more interesting, attractive and cared for. After Spalding town centre was nominated for the programme, Transported and Spalding Civic Society commissioned artist Joseph Hillier for their ambitious commission, the first of many, to celebrate the town’s markets. Pupils from Spalding High School took part in shortlisting and were involved in final selection after the maquettes were exhibited around the town. The project has involved local people being 3D scanned by Joseph and then cast into bronze.
