Water Features

Abstract

With two new sculptures on Blackpool's Promenade and the upcoming move of Antony Gormley's Another Place to Crosby Beach, Jonathan Schofield explores the relationship between art and the waterside. He looks at examples both good and bad that can be found along beaches and rivers in the Northwest and examines the aesthetic benefit of having public art next to water.
