Artist Matt Baker has been commissioned to develop ideas for an innovative public art project linked to the Way of the Roses, a new coast-to-coast cycle route between Morecambe and Bridlington.
'I have just completed a marathon 4 week research journey along the route (see my blog : http://tinyurl.com/32ro85p). It was a very inspiring trip and I interviewed over 50 people/groups on the way. I am working towards a concept presentation on Nov 10th and will be proposing a series of interlinked site-specific collaborations with local groups and artists over the route together with works for either end (the two ends will set up the conceptual framework for the smaller works along the way)'
