Centred around the Marina, extending to the Port Marine and Village Quarter, more than twenty outstanding visual artists have contributed to the Portishead Public Art Trail, which connects new Portishead with the old town. Their works, which reflect the town’s rich history and heritage, are integrated into the landscape.
A work that looks like used matches, entitled, “When Shall We Three Meet Again?”, reflects on the history of the former phosphorous plant in Portishead, while the “Arc of Angels”, in Jubilee Park, shows five female figures which commemorate the masts of Portishead Radio (ask any naval person) that once stood above the town and used to control shipping movements across the world.
