On Thursday 9th November, the four shortlisted artists attended a briefing meeting at Horsham District Council offices for the next stage of the selection process.
They also took time out to visit the intended site for the memorial in Horsham Park.
This next stage involves the artists completing a detailed design proposal which, as part of the process, will be submitted for public consultation early in the New Year.
David Hide, Chair of the Shelley Memorial Project, said, 'We would like to congratulate the four shortlisted artists who have been nominated for this next exciting stage.
"We are thrilled to have four excellent proposals from such eminent practitioners, and we are pleased that the completion of the shortlisting brings the realisation of the project's aims a step closer.
"We look forward to the exhibition of the final proposals and the public consultation that will take place next year.
"We hope everyone with an interest in public art and Horsham's great poet will contribute their views to the selection of the final design. '
