The Importance of Public Art: a talk by Martin BlackwellMar 6

The Importance of Public Art
A talk by Martin Blackwell










Norwich BID’s mural project is one example of their aim to enliven vacant and tired spaces in the city centre with dynamic large-scale murals to the theme of City of Stories. BID asked artists, designers and illustrators to submit mural ideas that can revitalise three city centre locations. Castle House, Tesco Metro and Tickety Boo are among those that have been selected as blank canvases, waiting to be brought to life by eye-catching murals. The city centre is already home to several other murals including a 3D bookshelf, a friendly dragon, and Norwich street scenes. The Tunnel of Light, installed for Christmas, is another example of public art brought to the city by BID. Martin Blackwell is Norwich BID’s Business and Operations Manager.

Squaring the Circle: a talk by artist Michael HornApr 10

Squaring the Circle
A talk by artist Michael Horn













Michael will explain how his work often contains contradictory aims and influences battling it out in search of some sort of resolution – a battle between a rarefied idealised world and an actual, often disordered one. His later work draws together strands from earlier abstract painting and combines it with elements from the natural world and the mood of the area in which he now lives, North Norfolk, giving a sense of place and continuity in the tradition of English landscape painting. Michael has exhibited widely, including the V&A, Kettles Yard, Wolterton Hall and Düsseldorf.
