Bristol Visitors Invited To Create Art History
Bristol’s Arnos Vale Cemetery will welcome internationally renowned artist Julia Vogl this Sunday, June 29 at 2:30pm, to unveil a new sculpture with an artistic twist for visitors to get hands on with.
The colourful development of the artwork will change in appearance as stones are positioned in answer to a single evocative question unveiled on the day.
Arnos Vale fought hard to land the opportunity to work with Julia following the nomination in a national competition, including museum finalists from Newcastle and Scarborough. Public Engagement Manager, Felicia Smith, explains: “We hope our visitors will enjoy interacting with the sculpture but also leave with the memory of the choice they made in response to the question.”
The sculpture will be open for the public to engage with for one year from the unveiling and documented online so visitors can track their contributions. Artist Julia Vogl, says: “As a public artist I am dedicated to working with communities in different sites and Arnos Vale is by far one of the most unique locations.”
Alongside the growing sculpture there will also be a schedule of art activity for the public. On the day the event will run until 4:00pm with free entry and refreshments available. For more information on the events visit www.arnosvale.org.uk
