New Public Artwork for MK

Heather and Ivan Morison: Cave 

Artists Heather and Ivan Morison have been commissioned by MK Gallery in collaboration with The Parks Trust to create a new public artwork for Campbell Park in Milton Keynes.


Taking inspiration from the man-made landscape of the park, Cave is formed from three leaning concrete panels and will nestle into the hillside of the Belvedere. The structure will provide visitors with a resting place that offers a panoramic view over the countryside.
