Public Art Commission – Statues of HRH Queen Elizabeth II

Public engagement

A key element of the two statues’ design will be the cloaks, where Amy plans to inscribe pictures telling the story of some of the events that took place during Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s reign.

Residents and visitors in Andover have been invited to contribute pictures on mini-canvases, as well as any personal memories of the Queen, at a series of engagement events. Participants from Anton Junior School, Portway, Roman Way, Mark Way, and Pilgrims Cross Schools; as well as Andover Nursing Home, and visitors to Second Sundays in Andover. More engagement events will take place in Romsey in the new year and we’ll share the dates here when we have them.

These images will help inspire how Amy inscribes the story of the Queen’s seventy-year reign onto the statues’ robes. Members of the public across the borough are also invited to send any personal recollections of the Queen to Amy on amysculptor@hotmail.com – remember to include your full name and the place where you live.

Look out for activites and opportunities to get involved, including engagement events about the Romsey statue, on our news pages and social feeds.
