The Market Art Project is an ongoing joint project with Transported Art to bring artworks into the town centre recalling the town's past as market for all forms of livestock and produce.

Portrait of a Town

Joseph Hillier was commissioned by Transported and the Spalding and District Civic Society in 2016 to create a series of sculptures reflecting the people who together reflect the unique character of Spalding and its importance to the Nation's food supply.


The Hiring

Laury Dizengremel’s sculpture commemorates the annual Hiring Fair held each May in Hall Place, when farm-workers and domestics converged on Spalding to offer their skills to employers in search of a shepherd or ploughboy or dairymaid.
