Sea Music Sculpture

Sea Music is a unique, site-specific sculpture by Sir Anthony Caro and was installed on Poole Quay in 1991. Sea Music was commissioned by Poole Arts Council and gifted by the sculptor to the town of Poole as a thank you as he enjoyed many holidays in the area. The sculpture is of international importance. As a work of modern art it has a significant place in Britain's recent artistic and cultural heritage.


What is the Sea Music Project?

Sea Music is special to Poole Quay. It is a piece of contemporary sculpture by an internationally renowned artist and it is right here in Poole, just 100 metres from Poole Museum! We want people to know about it and celebrate it, so over the next year we will be working with the local community, businesses, schools and other cultural institutions to create an exciting events plan for the sculpture that will see the skills and interests of the local community uncovered and celebrated.
