Adam Bridgland


‘You Will Have Dignity If You Come Here’ is Adam Bridgland’s first public art commission in the United Kingdom. Bridgland was awarded the funding in 2009 by Futures Community College and Commissions East.

The star references the lights on Southend’s famous promenade. This is emphasised by the photo-luminescent aluminium frame, that brings the artwork to life at night.

A.J Wells created the weathered base using Corten steel. The rust-like appearance acts as a form of protection when exposed to the elements.The photo-luminescent framing system was designed and engineered at A.J Wells.

The installation stands at the entrance to Futures College as an eye-catching sculpture by day and night that will be resistant to all weather types for many years to come.

More recently Adam returned to A.J Wells to produce a commission called 'Always Thoughts Of Tomorrow In Mind' which featured vitreous enamelled panels with light emitting diodes embedded in the panels
