Why we chose a lighthouse
Date published: 30 September 2023
Why a lighthouse?
Southampton Hospitals Charity are thrilled to work with Wild in Art to bring a spectacular art installation to Southampton and Cowes in 2024, to raise vital funds for our children’s hospital.
Being a coastal city, the lighthouse has maritime relevance and historically provided safe passage for sailors.
In addition to the maritime theme, the symbolism of a lighthouse represents a beacon of hope, strength, and safety, and this is what we feel our hospitals provide for our patients.
Call for artists
Southampton shines brightest when we come together.
Standing 2.5m tall, the sculptures will provide an excellent large-scale canvas for local and national artists and will also link to many core curriculum areas for the associated learning programme.
