Our project to commemorate, as part of the City of Culture 2017, the club’s first ground has taken some forward steps. Chris Smith provides an update on his and Alan Hemingway’s work thus far.
The “Public Art” to commemorate Hull City’s former Anlaby Road ground has progressed to the important stage of appointing an arts administration, finance and project management expert.
The proposed location adjacent to the Argyle Street walkway leading to the KC Stadium has also been confirmed by the Board. Early indications are that the eventual planning application will be positively received by the planners.
The next stage is to complete the research of the club’s early history and the establishment of the former ground. Such detail will help to populate the artist’s brief.
The brief will be subsequently published for expressions of interest to be accompanied by artists’ interpretation of the brief.
