Sculpture Found!

As Margie pointed out and Howard Turpin from Learning Services spotted, the Unknown Sculpture can be found in Southport and thanks to the scary wonders of Google Street View we can even see it!

Update: I should have thought to look in Fiona Montgomery’s book earlier as it tells us (almost) everything we want to know:

The Eternal Struggle by Dan Manning is one of the best known of the Edge Hill sculptures. In the tradition of Henry Moore it was originally on show at the Crystal Palace. Constructed from preformed concrete, at first sight it seems to be two separate parts, closer inspection reveals that it is two separate parts, but linked. This gave the title ‘Eternal Struggle’ and, in a burst of irony (?), is was located outside the Chief Executive’s window!

“Goat” – Tony Evans

A new piece of art has been unveiled in Edge Hill University’s sculpture park as part of the institution’s 125th anniversary celebrations.

Liverpool-born artist Tony Evans has created the artwork which uses a skin of copper sheet over a skeleton of stainless steel. The new commission depicts an impressionistic representation of a goat and idea that came from the University’s semi-rural location.

Read the full story.

See the new sculpture outside the Business and Law building and a selection of Tony’s work in the building’s foyer until Friday 19th March.
