Remember those right and colourful life-sized cows scattered across the towns and fields of Cornwall? In 2009, Hall for Cornwall ran its first community art project, Jack’s Cows. This project was a great success attracting a great deal of media attention and business sponsorship as well as involvement from the greater arts community in Cornwall.
Hall for Cornwall will once again be working with the county’s creative talent to bring you another fun and accessible art project, this time using beautiful carousel horses. Decorated by locally and nationally renowned artists, up to forty horse sculptures will be displayed in locations throughout Cornwall in the summer of 2013.
Carousel Cornwall launched on 4th July at Hall for Cornwall’s monthly networking event, Cornwall Networks Club. The launch saw the theatre’s Recommended Artists come together with local businesses and HfC staff to discuss the forthcoming art project and the opportunities available. We’re encouraging businesses to get involved with the project, and have a limited number of sponsorship packages available.
This August, Hall for Cornwall will be holding a fairground themed art exhibition. This exhibition will showcase the artistic style and ideas of our Recommended Artists, allowing potential sponsors and the public to experience a little of Carousel Cornwall before the main event.
