Not often one gets a chance to show work to millions. Exactly this was made possible as Cass Sculpture Foundation is currently celebrating twenty years of commissioning new work from emerging and established artists, and they parallel with the spectacular Tony Cragg‘s sculptures on Exhibition Road and near by museums put on the event called ‘Art Outside’. Conceived by Sir John Hegarty and in collaboration with JCDecaux, aims to give artists a platform to showcase their work.
From 17 September, for four days (from 10am – 5pm), artists are invited to create masterpieces on a giant outdoor easel. Each person will create an artwork, which will be showcased across the UK until 9 October on the JCDecaux digital poster network and will be seen by over 8 million people. The large screens are Liverpool Street, King‘s Cross, StPancras, Waterloo and major stations across the UK.
My half hour was a thrill for me. I had to take the opportunity and create something too! I made ‘Organic Snails’. If you see the screens and you manage to take a snap, please send it over. I’d be grateful. Thank you. Watch out for organic poster looking like these images:
