Stobie Poles

Stobie Poles

Prospect's nationally famous Stobie Pole Project was begun in 1983 by then Artist in Residence, Ann Newmarch, and developed by her into a community arts activity in 1986. Artists were invited to paint some poles and also engaged to work with residents. Many of the original poles remain; others have been removed to allow electric cables to be laid underground. Some significant painted poles are listed. Residents can still apply to paint their stobie pole.

  • Six Poles artists include Ann Newmarch, Anna Platten, Cath Cantlon reinstated outside Prospect Gallery, 1 Thomas Street Nailsworth
  • Two Famous Marks Ziggy Moskwa Memorial Gardens, Flora Terrace, Prospect
