Isle of Wight venue shortlisted for new initiative

Proposals to bring a new arts initiative to the Isle of Wight have been revealed, with contemporary artists potentially coming to the island to give a talk as a result.

Museums at Night is being run by Connect10 and offers museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites up and down the country the chance to host an event, reports local news source VentnorBlog.

A plan has been submitted for the island to hold a talk by internationally-acclaimed landscape and documentary photographer Simon Roberts, who is currently completing a project titled Pierdom to photograph every UK seaside pier.

The Isle of Wight has four of the 68 piers in the UK and would fit in with the snapper's campaign, with the event potentially set to take place between May 18th and 20th.

Yarmouth Pier is located on the west of the island and is the only structure of its kind in the UK that is still standing and is completely made of wood.
