Flying High a collaborative public artwork was unveiled at Lifestyles, Kirkwall on Monday, October 22nd at 2pm.
‘Flying High’ comprises 8 large canvases.
It hangs around the central octogen with its vaulted glass ceiling and natural light.
Local artist Sheena Graham George and Ullapool-based artist Angelica Kroeger were commissioned to carry out the project, which has included several hands-on workshops with service users from the Lifestyles Service along with partner organisations Connect, SEAL and the Blide Trust.
Those involved have already had a taste of exhibiting through a ‘work in progress’ showcase of creative material generated through the project which was displayed at the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness and at the Pickaquoy Centre in April this year.Lifestyles Public Art Project
