Art is a splash for school children

Boscombe library’s facelift is complete, thanks to new water inspired artwork created by local schoolchildren.

Pupils from Bethany School, Kings Park Primary School and Sharp school created the specially designed panels.

The artwork stretches along the exterior of the library and is the length of the building.
Lead artist Peter Dunn told the Inquisitor: "The artwork is a based upon the reflections made when near water".

He added: "It acts as a metaphor for people reflecting on their lives, what it means to live in Boscombe, and what the library means to them".

The glass was also specially pressed and polished to add to the effect of creating a reflection in water.

The project was privately funded by the East Dorset Housing Association, Bournemouth council, the Housing Corporation and Arts Council England.
