Although it was a miserable rainy day outside, we enjoyed taking up residence in the National Waterfront Museum and created some spectacular ‘wild west’ themed Swansea signs. It really was fun for all the family, with those of all ages getting involved and designing a whole host of signs ranging in colour and size and helped by volunteers, Rosie, Ellie and Gemma.

Thank you to everyone who came down to the Museum and enjoyed the workshop, run by Rebecca Rendell and Carla Shepherd. We look forward to seeing the signs in all their glory when they go up for Art Across The City 2015 and Graham Dolphin’s upcoming artwork – watch out for yours!

We invite you to help us make one of the artworks for Art Across The City 2015, Swansea’s annual public art festival which opens on 21st March 2015.

The artist, Graham Dolphin, has designed an artwork to be made from a collection of ‘wild west’ style signs that say the word ‘SWANSEA‘. The public are asked to paint ‘SWANSEA‘ onto a wooden board in a variety of colours and sizes of their choice. Each sign will then be fixed to a series of signposts in the city. The signs will be arranged to point to the various other ‘Swanseas’ across the world making a colourful and bold artwork that shows how our city has connections across the globe.
