Pinsky will be part of a cross-disciplinary team of engineers, planners and consultants. The West Bay work is part of the wider Dorset Coastal Connections portfolio of 18 projects. The portfolio is funded by the Coastal Community Fund and coordinated by the Dorset Coast Forum. The Arts Development Company is working collaboratively with Dorset Coast Forum and the individual project teams. The project will continue until Summer 2019.
Cleo Evans, Art and Environment Lead at the Arts Development Company, said:
‘It’s fantastic to have an artist of this calibre working on West Bay. His work is internationally renowned and exceptionally high quality.’
The project a covers a new central ‘Hub’, the construction of a boardwalk and viewing platform on East Beach, enhancements to the West Beach promenade and the creation of a cycle path between West Bay and Bridport.
