The Tinsley Art Project is a major public art project in the Tinsley Locks and Blackburn Meadows area of Sheffield – the gateway to the Sheffield City Region.

Following an open appointment process the studio of British artist Alex Chinneck has been appointed by the Project Board to create a significant public artwork inspired by the area's rich industrial history and natural beauty and supporting the wider regeneration of the Lower Don Valley.


Over the last 15 months Alex has been engrossing himself in the area and working with local schools, cultural organisations and businesses to develop a workable design for the project, that can truly claim to be ‘Made in Sheffield’.
