Bridport Sculpture Trail 2022
New leaflet welcomes works gifted by Greta Berlin

Bridport Town Council has welcomed the addition of nine new sculptures, by local
artist Greta Berlin, that have been added to the popular Bridport Sculpture Trail.
Now in its third year of development under an agreement with the Arts Development
Company (ADC), the additions to the trail are part of a generous gift from Greta to
Bridport.

Bridport-based and Royal College trained artist Isla Chaney instigated the trail in
2019, by placing some of her work in public spaces. Since then, the sculpture trail
has evolved with new works by local artists added each year. This year – as well as
retaining some established favourite artworks by Brendon Murless, Vik Westaway,
Carrie Mason, and Isla Chaney – nine new sculptures by Greta Berlin have been
included.

Pick up a sculpture trail leaflet from Bridport TIC, or download the PDF version, and
explore the green spaces surrounding the town. Sites with sculptures include
Plottingham Field, Riverside Gardens, Borough Gardens and the Millennium Green.

The sculpture trail is managed and curated by Cleo Evans at ADC on behalf of
Bridport Town Council. In the autumn, ADC will being running a public consultation
to find out which sculptures have most won the hearts of local people and explore
how to continue to grow the sculpture trail into the future.

Councillor Karen Hunt, a member of the panel that selects new sculptures, remarked
on the new additions to the trail:

“The town council is delighted to have received the gift of sculptures from Greta
Berlin in 2022. Our community is rich with highly skilled artists and the sculpture trail
provides the opportunity to showcase their talents within our green routes. The trail
enhances these green spaces and will be lovely for residents and visitors to discover
beautiful and thought-provoking pieces of contemporary art”
