Mearns Academy: Mountain to Sea
Lead Artist: Mary Bourne
Client: Aberdeenshire Council

The brief for this new school building was to integrate artworks which celebrate the unique character of the Mearns. Three artworks, reflecting the special flora of the area, were integrated into the fabric of the building:
A series of window images developed from the unique flora of the Mearns.
A series of window images derived from Mearns crop plants from prehistory to the present.
A sandblasted granite and flagstone pavement developed from some of the flowering crop plants seen in the Mearns today.
