Richard Austin’s bronze sculpture Quoit recently traveled up from North Cornwall to its new home in Grantown-on-Spey in the Highlands of Scotland, arriving just in time for Doors Open Day 2019. The Grantown Society took care of all the logistics, after selecting Quoit from our Sculpture Adoption Scheme Online Catalogue. You too can welcome a sculpture into your community! https://www.sculptureplacementgroup.org.uk/projects/sculpture-adoption-scheme/online-catalogue/
As part of Doors Open Day’s 30th year celebrations, SPG have teamed up with Scottish Civic Trust to find new homes for sculptures. We are busy matchmaking artworks that are currently in storage, with Doors Open Days venues across the country.
During each weekend in September, you can visit adopted sculptures in their new locations. We’ve created a digital map of the adopted sculptural artworks in the different regions of Scotland. Come and see a giant gold ring in Cumbernauld’s Shopping Centre, visit a stone wave vortex in a Sensory Garden in Falkirk or see some mysterious vessels on the banks of Lochearn!
