Industries' excellence captured in new artwork


A new public artwork showcasing the Island's Achievements in engineering and manufacturing over almost two centuries has gone on permanent display.

Ten aluminium panels depicting Manx inventions and constructions  large and small have been designed and created by students from around the Island.

They have gone on display a the Isle of Man College Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre at Hill's Meadow in Douglas.

The images range from the Laxey Wheel to the Peel P50 and Ramsey swing bridge to the Series 1 wristwatch by Roger W Smith.

The project is the manufacturing and engineering sector's contribution to Island of Culture year, combining art, science and history.

The display was unveiled by Tonal president Clare Christian last month, who said the panels took the viewer through the history of the two industries over a period of almost 200 years.

Members of the public interested in viewing the display should contact John.Cashin@gov.im.
