Art under the Flyover
Venue : ?
VENUE 35 IS ACCESSIBLE FROM HOTWELLS RD, FARADAY RD & CUMBERLAND BASIN RD- see site map below
Art under the Flyover, established in 2011, is a continuing programme of arts in the Cumberland Piazza aiming to enliven and regenerate this iconic space. The programme is overseen by Hotwells & Cliftonwood Community Association and managed by Anna Haydock-Wilson.
In the 1960?s streets in Hotwells were cleared to make way for a flyover and the area underneath was re-designed by landscape architect, Sylvia Crowe. For years the space remained derelict- there used to be fountains and playparks. Local people of all ages have had diverse ideas for the future, a roller coaster, a tennis court and even an urban beach!
We haven’t got a roller coaster or a beach but we have some lovely murals by Dave Bain & Amy Hutchings, some play sculptures by Anna Haydock-Wilson, Luke Carnaby & Thomas Sale and new this year is a street art project with local young people led by Luke Palmer of Collaborative Painting UK and a new mural by Amy Hutchings and Hotwells Primary School children.
Over the past few years we have delivered genuine improvements to the site through various creative projects, involving several artists and local activists. To read all about the progress, please visit http://artundertheflyover.com
