Channels Public Art Update

As previously reported, Chelmsford City Council secured funding to enable the design and integration of public art into the Channels Development, with the aim of enhancing the character and identity of the development.

The general concept will be a giant mammoth rising up out of the ground which ties in with the preferred Ice Age theme and local geology in an original way. The proposed location is the bottom end of Channels Park.

Following a brief delay, the artist (Michael Condron) has advised of the following programme for the fabrication and installation of the Mammoth Sculpture to the park at Channels:

  • Late March: Commence fabrication
  • May: Fabrication 50% complete
  • June/July: Prepare foundation
  • July/August: Install sculpture, finish landscaping.

A detailed document that explains the context and work undertaken so far can be found HERE.
