Saturday 9th July 2016
Please join us to celebrate the completion of this new artwork for Castlegate. We’re delighted to have worked with Sheffield City Council and arts collective Glassball on the longest artwork in Sheffield, spanning 175 metres in total it tells the story of one of Sheffield’s most historic sites.
We’re hosting a public event on Saturday 9th July from 12 – 2pm, next to the hoardings on the corner of Waingate & Exchange Street.
At 1pm artist Cora Glaser and archaeologist historian Rachel Askew will be delivering a walking tour of the artwork. Free and open to all. Please join us and collect a specially commissioned Castlegate fridge magnet! Arts collective Glassball have been working since October last year to create this amazing, rich and multilayered artwork for the hoardings around the Sheffield Castle and former castle markets site. It is full of historic and contemporary detail, interesting facts, fiction and people’s everyday tales of Castlegate.
We think its a true reflection of the care and dedication given to the project by project partners and the artists Cora Glaser & David Ball and their commitment to including the voices of the good people of Sheffield.
Come along and judge for yourself!
