Update from Momentary Art Project

I am sorry I have been so remiss in not updating the Momentary Art Project blog, needless to say it is due to extreme buzy-ness for all concerned at MAP central.

Big day today for all at MAP at Lidl on Leasowe Road today as artwork from Wallasey School, now Kingsway Academy is being unveiled  at 2pm.  The Mayor and Mayoress will be there and the school are putting on a show. Apparently the weather is being kind with 22 degs forecast.

During the summer, two artworks were completed through assistence from Love Wirral with two local artists Breda Whyte and Fred Biddulph working with two local primary schools, New Brighton Primary and Mount Primary working on the themes of The Lighthouse and The Black Pearl. We thank The Light Cinema for their assistance. The artworks were reproduced on poly carbon and attached to the white art deco toilet block on Harrison Drive. This is part of a series of works that we hope to produce called "Brighten New Brighton". Two of our directors have financed another artwork for the Lifeguard Station nearby, with an artwork from John Christiansen, whom we have worked previously in his former role at Mosslands School. We are hoping in the very near future that a ceramic mosic will also be joining the art work on the toilet block.

In our unit, kindly offered to us by Neptune who have continued to give us support, we have had an ongoing programme of exhibitions, viewable from the pavement. Currently we have an exhibition from Wallasey School but this will be coming down in the next few days and will be followed by an exciting exhibition from The Black Pearl and all who play in her. This will in place throughout September and part of October and will be followed by an exhibition tying in with an Irish themed festival being organised by Jo of Calico. We hope to intice artists to create irish themed artwork (but more of this later).

Our Christmas exhibition will be another communal show that everyone can get involved in with 3d flat pack baubles, we are currently working on a template that you can download and submit your final artwork.

We are also working on two huge projects with United Utilities which will be tremendous if we pull it off. So wish us all the luck in the world and keep following us on facebook through our page Momentary Art Project on facebook and Friends group Friends of MAP and on Twitter MAP on Twitter
