Lighthouse sculptures set to decorate Southampton and Cowes

Shining a light on Southampton and Cowes

We are delighted to announce we are working with Southampton Hospitals Charity to bring a brand new Wild in Art event to Southampton and Cowes in summer 2024.

Light the South will feature 40 of our magnificent super-sized lighthouse sculptures on a large-scale public art event that promises to captivate your senses and ignite your imagination.

They will be on display for eight weeks through the streets and public spaces of Southampton and Cowes, each one a unique masterpiece designed by artists both local and well renowned, creating a family-friendly trail of discovery for visitors and residents to enjoy and explore.

The lighthouses will then come together for a farewell event in September 2024 before being auctioned off to raise vital funds for Southampton Children’s Hospital.

The charity are inviting the local business community to come on board by sponsoring a sculpture. Find out more by visiting
