Just North of the Clock Tower Cafe along the Promenade are a series of engaging public art installations that formed part of the 1994 Tern Project.
Fun for kids hid and seek the Panorama represents the views over Morecambe Bay towards the Lake District hills. Views that in real life are ever changing and provide dramatic sun sets and seascapes. This installation evokes an interpretation of the view on a clear day.
Cut in steel and cement infilled Russell Coleman's interpretation is located at the former Central Pier entrance.
Noteworthy peaks are identified using raised steel text and those with a bird connection are given larger letters. www.tern.org.uk/art-panorama.htm
Offset from the main Promenade an elevated artwork feature depicts the food chain and ecosystem of Morecambe Bay. Plancton, shell fish, mud worms, crustaceans, fish and wildfowl and waders are depicted in sandstone carvings, cast 'petri dishes' and pavings to form an intricate pattern based around the spiral of life. www.tern.org.uk/art-seewall.htm
Artist Rachel Joynt illustrates the effects of the moons gravity on the Bay. Cleverly linking moon phases with the sculpted ripple patterns left in the estuary mud by the action of the see is the 'Moon Walk'.
