We’ve always believed that the power of art can challenge the perception of place and when we had the opportunity of enjoying Futurescope’s first – and possibly – most-loved image of this gigantic, outdoor art installation, we couldn’t resist bringing it out with the sunshine!
Heralding the start of Spring – even Darlington’s sunshine came out especially for the occasion – we’re enjoying a walk down memory lane with this much-loved first image of Futurescope. The two year-long sequential, outdoor exhibition of eight massive circular photographs and images were displayed on the landmark Power House at one of the major access routes into Darlington and set the pace for Lingfield Point’s art strategy – outlining our ambition to become a place where ‘art happens’.
Futurescope was the first visual manifestation of our national art strategy and we’re as pleased as punch with our results so far. Artists studios now buzz with activity, an artist in residence celebrate her historic links with Patons & Baldwins, there is a packed event calendar to entertain our 2,500+ employees and who could forget the wonderful world-first ‘Festival of Thrift’ – set to return on 27 & 28 September this year.
We believe that art plays a pivotal role in making a positive difference to places, people and society – but its more than regeneration - its about bringing heart and soul back into a landscape – and we think that our lovely Lingfield landscape looks better for it.
