Luton Dunstable Busway Contemporary History Trail – Artwork 2
This sculpture celebrates the Downs and the popular activity of kite flying there. The sculpture also celebrates local businesses at the height of Dunstables manufacturing past.
The kites here represent: A spark for AC Delco spark plug production, A pattern from a paper doily, and confetti – all of which were produced in the area.
The sculpture was designed by Artist Pete Moorhouse. His ideas were informed by community consultation and workshops with several local schools; St Georges, Icknield Lower School, King’s Houghton Middle School and Central Bedfordshire College.
