New artwork to be put up in Warrington Bus Interchange
8:00am Tuesday 19th March 2013 in News
CULTURAL groups and organisations are all on board with a new advertising initiative targeting bus passengers.
Warrington Borough Council’s public transport team has signed an agreement with Warrington and District Arts Council (WADAC) which lets them use some hoardings in the bus interchange to publicise upcoming art events.
And to promote the first hoarding WADAC commissioned Lymm-based artist Richard Cowley to design a mural to showcase the space.
Warrington Arts Council chairman Margaret Tye said: “This mural will be an eye-catching addition to the artistic assets of what is becoming one of the most go-ahead towns in the north west.
“We are grateful to Clr Mike Hannon for his help and Clr Linda Dirir who has been at the heart of the project. Special thanks are also due to Warrington Borough Council managers David Boyer and Alyn Jones who went out of their way to be of assistance.”
Dr Michael Murphy, secretary of WADAC added: “Warrington is a town of best kept secrets. There is so much talent in this town and so many cultural and not-for-profit groups putting on events who are hampered by the problem of paying for advertising out of their limited funds, not any more.”
Any society interested in using the projected advertising space can e-mail Dr Michael Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 851092.
