Optohedron wins Guildford Design Award

9th December 2021

Surrey Hills Arts are delighted to announce that the Optohedron by Will Nash has won the Guildford Design Award for public art. Alison Clarke from Surrey Hills Arts and artist Will Nash were joined by Mayor Marsha Moseley and Chair of the judges, Peter Coleman at the ceremony.

The Optohedron can be found on the North Downs Way near to Newlands Corner in the Surrey Hills. 

This follows the fantastic news that Surrey Hills Arts has also been awarded funding for their ‘Habitat’ pilot project. Will Nash will be one amongst a handful of artists and ecologists that will work together to create a green zone on campus at the University of Surrey. This project will also work to engage local communities in building innovative habitats to support local species. To support this work further, you can ‘like’ Habitat on Your Fund Surrey, to help secure funding for the future of the project.
