'Sea Music' stands on the Quay at Poole, just a short distance from Poole Museum. It is an extraordinary sculpture and landmark for Poole. It was designed and created by Sir Anthony Caro, considered to be one of Britain's greatest sculptors. 'Sea Music' is his only site specific work.
Whilst Caro receives international acclaim, 'Sea Music' at present, is an under realised asset for Poole. Sadly, its position by the sea, which Caro evokes in the design, means that it has suffered from serious salt corrosion as well as considerable wear and tear from the use of the viewing platforms. After 25 years, 'Sea Music' is now in urgent need of repair and if we do not act now the integrity of the structure could be lost.
