Bow School Public Art commission reaches second phase

Submitted by Education on Fri, 14/11/2014 - 15:29

Over the past two years, we've been working with Bow School in Tower Hamlets on a series of public art commissions to brighten up the school's new site, which opened in the summer. For the first phase, we worked with design studio make:good, alongside students and staff from the school to create designs for the school gates and for a nearby underpass, as well as a series of inspirational messages which follow a route from nearby Bromley-by-Bow tube station to the school. The artwork was launched in July at an event with speeches from Director of Tate Nicholas Serota and artist Michael Craig Martin (below).

The project has now entered it's exciting second phase and we're pleased to be working with artist Julia Vogl on a commission that will be installed on the boundary fence between the schools site and the adjacent Limehouse Cut waterway (below). Julia has previously worked on public art commissions across the UK and USA and we're really excited to see how the project progresses!
