Over the last 50 years, Milton Keynes has developed an excellent reputation for Public Art development, with over 220 Public Artworks across the city.

"Public Art in Milton Keynes is about inviting the vision, creativity, and skills of artists, to engage people freely with the place, in a well-considered way."

A quick short meet to introduce you to one of MK's sometimes forgotten pieces of artwork. The usual chatter and socialising are encouraged.

When: Sunday 8th May, 11:00 to 11:30

Where: Meet next to the artwork "Head".

Who: Geocachers near and far, new and old, everyone is welcome!

 

Head by Allen Jones (1990)

Head is a simply constructed yet powerful sculpture in which the artist has used two dimensional silhouettes to create a three-dimensional form. The figure suggests a tent structure and initially seems to be an entirely abstract piece. As the viewer walks around the human form reveals itself. The artist deliberately constructed the piece to encourage visitors to spend time and explore it. Made of Corten steel which weathers over time to create a textured surface.
