“WOW” The Great Exhibition 2017 – “Earth What a Wonderful World”
Stunning artwork adorns the magnificent Gothic architecture of Lichfield Cathedral once more as part of the first of 4 annual Great Exhibitions being staged between 2016 and 2020, created by Lichfield Cathedral artist in Residence Peter Walker and featuring an array of stunning artworks, including numerous light and sound works by Luxmuralis.
This spectacular exhibition is one of the largest art installation ever created in a British Cathedral and brings together many different contemporary artworks to look at the world around us from many different perspectives. “Not only a visual and musical feast, there were also moments which inspired awe and reflection”, Charmaine (exhibition visitor)
“Brilliant, visually stimulating and thought provoking” Judith B (visitor)
The exhibition is developed by the team behind the Award winning A Cathedral Illuminated which thousands will remembers adorned the Cathedral before Christmas last year. “We are delighted with the response from the public. This is a major international quality exhibition hosted at the most remarkable Cathedral in the country and the feedback we are receiving is paying justice to the endeavour of the Cathedrals creative team, lead artistic team Luxmuralis and volunteers hard work in bringing this project to the city” Peter Walker, Cathedral Artist in residence.
Visitors will experience the Cathedral nave transformed into a British garden with 44m of fake grass, a summer house and the internal architecture of the Cathedral adorned with projections which are thought provoking, beautiful and unexpected, as well as being able to contribute to a living artwork in the form of a project called “The Butterfly Effect” and seeing the work of 5000 children in a unique art installation of painted tiles.
“The best recommendation we can give is the comment of a young child who walked into the Cathedral last night and said ‘WOW’”, said Peter Walker.
