Local people asked to help design artwork for new hospital in Altrincham
Local people are being invited to get involved in artwork that
is being designed for the new hospital currently being built in
Hospital bosses have asked arts charity Lime to create pieces of
artwork specifically for the new Altrincham Hospital and artist
Stella Corrall wants to work with the local community to help her
develop her designs.
Stella will create a piece of artwork for the main waiting area,
as well as designs for three glass panels in the new hospital which
is due to open in spring next year.
A number of sessions have been organised to give people an
opportunity to meet Stella, discuss the overall theme of the
artwork and contribute their ideas. There will also be a
chance to get involved in some fun, hands-on activities. The
aim of the sessions is to get a local flavour and feel that will
help to inspire the designs for the new artwork.
The sessions are being held in Stamford Ward in the current
Altrincham Hospital on Market Street on the following dates:
- Wednesday 26th November 2.00 pm - 4.00
- Tuesday 2nd
10.00 am - 12 noon
- Saturday 6th December
10.00 am - 12
- Thursday 11th
December 5.00 pm - 7.00 pm
come for the whole session or drop in at any time. You don't
have to be particularly arty yourself but you
may have an idea or ideas of what you'd like to see in the new
hospital. All ideas are welcome.
Stella creates artworks using specifically designed, flexible
translucent plastics. Each design begins with creating the material
itself: its inherent colour, pattern and form. This tactile
material is then manipulated and developed into decorative
site-specific art installations. She has extensive experience
of devising and delivering innovative hands-on activities that
enable themes and relationships to develop.
She said: "My aim is to intrigue, delight and engage
people of all ages. By working with the community and client
my work develops naturally in response to the environment, creating
artwork with welcoming warmth and reassurance."
Stella has created artwork for a number of local health settings
including Forum Health in Wythenshawe and the Primary Care Centre
in Ashton under Lyne.
