Contemporary artist Caroline McCarthy has been commissioned to create an artwork for Half Moon Lane
Following extensive flooding in Half Moon Lane in 2013, footfall to the area has declined leading to a challenging trading environment for local retailers. Flood affected traders and business owners along with Herne Hill Forum have been working with the Contemporary Art Society for the last few months to find an artist who can undertake a meaningful rethinking of place and local identity through the creative lens of contemporary art.
Caroline McCarthy has now been appointed to this commission and is currently undertaking research for the artwork which will be inspired by the local community, bringing together stories, anecdotes and historical facts. She is asking for people connected to the area to contact her through this website: http://www.halfmoonproject.info/
