Artwork in Hall Place Gardens

Centrepieces has entered into an exciting new partnership with Hall Place, and the Council will fund some temporary artwork to be created by Centrepieces’ artists in the gardens at Hall Place. 12 proposals have been agreed, encompassing a wide range of ideas and media. See the Twelve menu and the Workshops page for more details.

You can also read more about the projects in this leaflet: Twelve

The first three projects, Word Webs, Drawing the Line and Never Forget, are now complete and there are videos and pictures on the individual web pages.
