LOCUS is a new contemporary art trail being devised around the centre of Lerwick by Living Lerwick in partnership with Shetland Arts. It will consist of up to four commissioned works of public art located at predefined sites that will act as town placemakers, animate the area and offer a new way to engage with contemporary art and the environment. An accompanying trail map will act as an interpretive guide, incorporating existing public artworks to create a wider trail. The self-led walking trail will encourage people to consider the town and its amenities with a fresh perspective, connecting business, place and art for the community and visitors alike.
