The Sands & The Seas Wall
The Sands and the Seas wall was painted in February 2016 as part Morecambe’s Victoria Street Press public art project. The artwork reflects the heritage of the Sands and Seas in Morecambe Bay using stories discovered in the local newspaper dating from as far back as 1908.
While we were painting we spent time talking to passers-by who have taken this artwork on as their own. It was amazing to see the work have such an immediate and positive impact; from the teenage girls who totally got the value in adding beautiful things to the town, to the thirteen year old boys who want to study art and to the long time residents of Morecambe who loved reading the old newspaper clippings.
