Officials are looking for help to choose the final design of a brand-new art installation at the Bloor Homes’ Banbury Rise development.

After months of exciting collaboration with more than 600 pupils from William Morris Primary School, Orchard Fields Community Primary Schools and North Oxfordshire Academy, the final decision for the Banbury Rise Public Art installation is up to the people.

Planet Art has spent a number of months working with the pupils in a series of virtual workshops. These have culminated in the theme of ‘New Beginnings,’ inspired by the artwork that the children generated.

This has led to three design options for the final art installation at the Banbury Rise development, and the one that’s the most popular will become a permanent installation at the development.
