Whitburn Public Art

A public engagement process has been undertaken for the design of public art outside the new Whitburn Partnership Centre. The artist Ailsa Magnus has engaged with the local community in Whitburn and has designed three public art concepts, with information on each design concept set out below. We are now asking for the community to select their favourite design.

Please review each of the design concepts and then login using MyAccount details and select your favourite design.

    I think the nature of music art would be the most meaningful, given the current success at the Scottish Brass Band Championships but I also think that this would be more suitable over a longer time period as it has a meaningful and contemporary feel/design.
