Then there is Art Floats

We took the art to the people!

Art Floats
July 5th and 12th, 2014

Images from the exhibition:

As part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail 2014, Waltham Forest Arts Cluban artist-led organisation that creates community art projects and organises member exhibitions throughout the year, took an art exhibition out into the community, stopping to set up the exhibition for a short time and then moved to the next location.  This way we expanded the Arts Trail out from the centre.  

We were happy when we were loaned a milk float for the two mornings of the project.  We built the project around the float and named it ‘Art Floats’.  Unfortunately at the last minute the dairy found out their insurer had changed their mind and they had to withdraw.  With such a short time left Arts Club settled on a 7-seater and modified the display system for the artworks.  The car was decorated with balloons to go along with the original name.‘Art Floats’ was a mobile art exhibition in three locations on the two Saturdays of the Leytonstone Arts Trail, July 5th and 12th.  Starting at Hollow Ponds, across from the Alfred Hitchcock Hotel, at 10:00, it moved to St John’s Church near the tube station for 11:30 and the final setting-up of the exhibition was at 1:00 at Langthorne Park.  It was a quick-change take down of the exhibition each time with the group of artists following after the car in public transport with banners and signs saying: 'Follow us to Art Floats!'
