Chain Reaction

Chain Reaction in Campbell Park has been restored and spruced up by local artists Colin Dundas and Kevin Humphrey. At the instigation of the Public Arts Trust in 2012 the Parks Trust agreed to put the conservation/refurbishment into their 2013 budget. The works, originally planned for June 2013, commenced on 23rd August and was expected to take three days.  Two artists/signwriters Colin and Kevin, have worked their magic on the sculpture and it is now back with its paintwork shining in the sun.

Chain Reaction,by Ray Smith, was commissioned in 1992 to celebrate the end of the first phase in Milton Keynes’ creation as a new city.

The conservation work included cleaning the artwork, treating areas that had suffered weather damage and rust and then repainting the sculpture in accordance with the original artist’s vision.

Ray, in discussion with the Pubic Arts Trust, had agreed that rather than the three original colours, darker at the base and lighter at the top blended in at each level, one colour would look right. This significant artwork will soon be back standing proud as part of the great Sculpture Park that is Campbell Park.
