PERMANENT works of public art are to be placed along Swansea's boulevard.
Four groups have been commissioned to create pieces that will be sited at the Wind Street crossing, the corner of the LC opposite Princess Way, Museum Park and the route between the Paxton Street tunnel and Meridian Quay.
Assemble, Wales-based Freshwest, an American-born artist based in Finland called William Denniusk and Aberrant Architecture have been selected to create the artworks.
Each is at an early stage in the design process but ideas will be presented for feedback and consideration later in the year.
The work is being funded by Swansea Council, the Welsh Government, EU, the Arts Council of Wales and private developers.
Council leader David Phillips said: "Public art can play an important role in city centre regeneration. It helps enhance the character and uniqueness of a city, emphasises key locations, gives a sense of place and encourages exploration.
"Cities like Barcelona, Melbourne and Chicago are world leaders in public art and, as Wales's city of culture, we want to follow in their footsteps.
"Projects of this nature are a major step in the right direction."
