Where can I find the art?
The artwork was showcased (and still is – for a short time only!) at various venues across Leicester including The Exchange, Manhattan 34, Peter’s Pizzeria, LCB Depot and the Adult Education Center.
In total, ten artists were carefully selected and each was able to submit a few pieces of their work to be displayed in each venue. With each person having a different artistic background, there were a vast selection of styles in the artwork including (but not limited to): photography, acrylic screen prints, sculptures, and paintings. Each piece explored an underlying meaning of something personal to the artists themselves. Themes that were explored included urban environments, seascapes and the perceptions of the female body. Overall, the project was a huge success. The main venues are located in the heart of Leicester’s cultural quarter making them easily accessible and therefore encouraging visitors. The project enabled the students to get the exposure they need to be noticed in the art world which makes the project worthwhile for unknown artists to have their work showcased in various locations.
