Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



“Choose your own artwork” to be installed on the seawall at Burnham-on-Sea.

Seed are working with Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council on an exciting creative project to commission a new piece of artwork for the seawall in Burnham-on-Sea. The artwork will run along a half-mile stretch between the planned new play area at South Esplanade and the Burnham-on-Sea pavilion.

Artists were invited to submit an initial proposal to a selection panel comprising members of Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council, Seed and community representatives. Two outstanding proposals were shortlisted and are about to go on display for members of the public to choose the one they prefer.

Seed Director Scott O’Hara explains “The brief for the artwork was to create a durable piece that responded to the local natural environment and celebrates the ecology of this part of Bridgwater Bay. Two proposals best reflecting this theme with a high-quality artistic response were shortlisted, and we are excited to give the people of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge an opportunity to vote for their favourite.”

Artist Jacqueline Seifert of Orakel Workshop proposes to create a series of ten unique tiled artworks, each exploring the special characteristics of the natural landscape.

The second proposal from artist Svetlana Kondakova explores a similar design concept. Svetlana will produce three mosaic murals, portraying views of Bridgwater Bay mudflats and the variety of wildlife they support above and below the surface. 

Now it’s up to you, the community of Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge, to decide which of these final two proposals will be created and installed. Voting can be done in person or digitally by the deadline of Sunday 13th March 2022.

Both proposals will be displayed in The Princess Theatre and Arts Centre, with voting boxes, from Tuesday 15th February. You can also cast your vote on the Seed website at https://seedsedgemoor.com/activities/burnham-on-sea-public-artwork/.
