The Sea Music Story (Floor 2 Exhibition)

22 nd November 2016 – 22 nd January 2017

 The history and future of Poole Quays Sea Music sculpture by international artist Sir Anthony Caro.


This exhibition explores the local history of the internationally important Sea Music and the plans for its conservation on the 25 th anniversary of its installation.   This sculpture was commissioned by the Poole Arts Council to provide a feature and meeting point on Poole Quay.  Built by local businesses with steel donated by British Steel it was an amazing feat of partnership working.  


In this exhibition you can find out local peoples stories of how they were involved and also contribute your own story. You can also see how Poole Museum are working with the Heritage Lottery Fund to repair, repaint and celebrate the sculpture, show your support and comment on the Sea Music Projects  future plans for creative ways to learn about your heritage.




Exploring Sea Music (Floor 1 Exhibition)
