Art U Need, Thames Gateway, Essex

Commissioner: Commissions East

Bob & Roberta Smith with Lucy Harrison, Andrea Mason, Milika Muritu, Hayley Newman and Jane Wilbraham

'Art U Need: An Outdoor Revolution' was an ambitious programme of commissions developed and managed by Commissions East and led by artist Bob & Roberta Smith, that investigated new ways of engaging communities in public art projects.

Working closely with the local people, drawing on their history, heritage and culture for inspiration, Lucy Harrison, Andrea Mason, Milika Muritu, Hayley Newman and Jane Wilbraham were commissioned to create site specific works for five districts in the Thames Gateway: Castle Point, Basildon, Southend, Rochford and Thurrock.

'Art U Need: My Part in the Public Art Revolution' by Bob & Roberta Smith and published by Black Dog is available to purchase from book sellers nationally.

The project was supported by the Thames Gateway South Essex Partnership, through the Investing in Communities (IiC) programme, funded by the east of England Development Agency and Arts Council England, East.
