Blue River this week unveils a sculpture by local artist Simon Watkin for its public art space, Project Blue1, outside its office on Forth Banks in Newcastle. Departure Gate features specially fabricated aeroplanes that will be illuminated at night and was inspired by ‘curving street lights [that] provoked an image of illuminated aircraft in flight’, says Watkin. The project is a collaboration between the consultancy, Newcastle City Council, Arts and Business Partners, Commissions North and the Arts Council North East.
