HARLOW Art Trust have begun installing new signage to the town’s sculpture collection today, starting in the museum gardens.
The signs are a council-funded initiative championed by councillor Eugenie Harvey.
They use a consistent graphic design that follows the green and yellow of the Harlow Sculpture Town maps and website.
The colours are bright and contrasting and the Trust hope will make the numbering and names of the artist and work easy to read and eye-catching.
There are three types of sign, a simple disc displaying the sculpture’s number alongside the historic bronze signs where these were still in place, rectangular signs where no sign previously existed and signs mounted on posts where the sculpture is set in planting or grass.
The signs are being installed by gallery technician and local handyman Jim Montgomery, who will be working across the town over the coming weeks completing the tasks of fitting the signs to all of the 100 sculptures.
You can explore the collection at www.sculpturetown.uk and in the run up to Easter the Trust will be distributing free maps in accessible locations around Harlow so keep an eye out for these too.
