Aflred Wallis, Five Ships, Mount's Bay c.1928
We are delighted to announce that Alfred Wallis’ Five Ships, Mount’s Bay (c.1928) from the Kettle’s Yard collection, has been chosen by the public as one of 57 works of art that will be displayed across the country as part of the Art Everywhere project. In fact Wallis’ work came 7th overall! The project aims to plaster the country with British masterpieces by transforming advertising space into art. From a longlist the public had the opportunity to choose their favourite artworks online and from 12 – 25 August the chosen artworks will be seen up and down the UK.
You will see poster sites ranging from billboards to bus stops transformed into British Masterpieces across high streets, major roads, tube, train and metro stations, supermarkets, shopping malls, office buildings, cinemas, health clubs and bars. 2000 London buses and 1000 black cabs will transport the artworks around the city on view for passengers as they navigate the streets.
Make sure you look out for Five Ships, Mount’s Bay, around the UK, send us a picture via Twitter (@kettlesyard) or Facebook when you spot it! Keep an eye out for other works of art and let us know if there is masterpiece near you.
If you want to come see the real thing, please come visit us when the cottages reopen in September. Entrance, as always, is free.
