Art & Design students produce artwork for local residents18th April 2011
An impressive piece of artwork designed and produced by Calderdale College Art & Design students has been unveiled by Sowerby Bridge residents.
The College was approached by Pennine Housing 2000, Calderdale’s largest registered social housing landlord, to design a mural for one of the organisation’s residential car park areas in Sowerby Bridge. Calderdale College art tutors and Pennine Housing 2000 staff consulted with residents, discussing ideas for the mural, before students began work on the piece.
Level 2 and 3 Art & Design students worked on the project, including Steve Bartle, Adam Ludlam and Connor Fairfield. They produced a series of giant boards, using newspaper, inks and paints, depicting an illustrated timeline of Sowerby Bridge, to span the wall of the carpark. The timeline included key dates and events in the town’s history, as well as a collage of images from the area.
A group of residents, College and Pennine Housing staff, as well as students Steve and Adam turned out on a beautiful sunny day to witness the official unveiling of the piece.
