Argus readers guess what the new Brighton art exhibition could be

ARGUS readers have made suggestions and guesses as to what might be featured in an art installation next fall.

Argus readers’ guesses ranged from penguins and bears to cats, squid and seagulls – a tribute to the sea and Albion.

Giving some suggestions from similar shows, Nessa Spence said: “I was in the Isle of Man in July and they had dolphins of all colors and patterns all over the island and in Edinburgh they had giraffes for a similar purpose.

“I think whatever is elected will be welcomed by Brighton and Hove.”

Another reader pointed out that “beautifully painted bunnies” graced the streets of Winchester earlier this summer.

“Maybe that’s what we’ll get next,” the reader said.

Faye Bridgwater suggested snowmen should be featured in next year’s exhibition as a tribute to The Snowman author Raymond Briggs, who died earlier this year.

Sally Ansell said she hopes the new exhibition will be ‘colourful’, which almost certainly will be the case after the previous two installations where models were decorated in different colours.

A hint as to what the next art adventure will be, posted to social media earlier this week, included the manager of one of the Martlets charity shops holding a figurine of a scarecrow and a donkey.

Regardless of what might be featured in the exhibit, one reader said they would like to see more neighborhoods across the city get their own sculpture.

They said: “I really hope that some of our outskirts will also get a sculpture. It would be fantastic if areas like Moulsecoomb and Whitehawk were included.”

The last exhibition saw a total of 50 snail sculptures placed across the city, some close to some of the city’s most iconic attractions including the i360, Palace Pier and Brighton Station.

The exhibition aims to raise more money for the charity Martlets, with previous events having seen the models auctioned off.

The Snails installation in 2018 raised more than £230,000 after the exhibition closed. Argus readers guess what the new Brighton art exhibition could be
