A figure by Sir Antony Gormley perched atop the Pioneer Adult Skills Centre in Northgate keeping a watchful eye on the comings and goings of the people of Dewsbury. The figure is on a ten year loan to mark the opening of the refurbished Pioneer House by Kirklees College and the beginning of the Creative Town arts programme.
The rooftop figure is an echo of his work in London 2007
and 'Event Horizon' exhibition in New York in 2010.
