Arts Award Win for St. John's Hill

Public art at Peabody’s St. John’s Hill regeneration near Clapham Junction, has won a prestigious sculpture award.

Four brick relief sculptures by artists Rodney Harris and Valda Jackson, have been awarded the Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture, by The Public Monuments and Sculpture Association. The awards seek to acknowledge and commend excellence, increase awareness and discussion of public sculpture, and celebrate new work that demonstrates originality, aesthetic quality and sensitivity to its site.

The sculptures at St. John’s Hill were designed in collaboration with architects Hawkins\Brown, residents and the local community, and have been incorporated into the new buildings. They include a porter’s uniform and the clothing children wore in the early days of the estate, and represent the memories, histories and occupations of residents past and present.

Commenting on the awards win, Rodney Harris said:

"It really is such an honour to receive this award in recognition of our work and creative process. I hope these artworks become a valued addition to the rich heritage of public sculpture in London"

Angela Epps, Development Director at Peabody said:

“The art works at St John’s Hill celebrate the past amongst the new, and will help to create a sense of belonging for future generations to come. We are very proud to see them recognised by these awards.”
