Points of Interest celebration and interview with artist Julia!

As we mentioned earlier in the blog, June 7th saw the Points of Interest group celebrate our Arts on the Move project!

It was a lovely afternoon celebrating the hard work the group have done over the past seven weeks, the exhibition looks fantastic and really showcases the groups individual artistic talents!

As well as this we unveiled a commissioned artwork for the Hinckley Times, the entire group had a part in the making of the artwork and we hope that they are as proud of it as we are!

It really was a lovely afternoon, with plenty of friends of Points of Interest visiting to celebrate with us over some delicious cupcakes! There was also a bit of excitement over a certain Royal visit with Prince Edward visiting North Warwickshire and Hinckley College around the same time as the celebration!

Below are some photos taken on the day as well as an interview with our wonderful Points of Interest artist Julia Smith, where she discusses the project more in depth

The exhibition is running in the Atkins Building until July 12th, we’d love it if you came to visit!





*For her art Julia goes by Julia Hunt not Julia Smith, sorry for any confusion!!
