New art work to be unveiled on Isle of Wight

A new piece of public art is to be unveiled on the Isle of Wight in celebration of its famous former resident John Milne, after members of the public were asked to vote for their favourite piece from a choice of four different designs.

The three-piece enamel work will be officially revealed on 26th November, having been installed on the wall of the Little London car park in Newport.

Following the public consultation, the art was designed by Southsea-based artist Kevin Dean, reports Island Pulse. He worked with the project team and local firm AJ Wells to produce it.

Dean trained at the Royal College of Art and has carried out a great deal fo work in Abu Dhabi.

British geologist John Milne worked on the horizontal seismograph and became well-known for his work in Japan, where he studied earthquake waves.

He died in 1913 and was buried on the Isle of Wight, at St Paul's Church in the town of Newport.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801493337-ADNFCR
