ART AT THE HEART OF THE COMMUNITY LONDON’S LARGEST ANNUAL OPEN-AIR ART FAIR
Urban Art 2016, is London’s largest annual open-air Contemporary Arts Fair and takes place along the railings of Josephine Avenue, London SW2, during the weekend of Saturday 9th July and Sunday 10th July from 10.00am to 6.00pm. Free entry.
Pupils from five Lambeth primary schools have contributed to the creation of a two metre wide circular mosaic that has been installed in the centre of a revamped traffic island garden, on the junction of Milkwood Road and Lowden Road SE24. Artwork produced by the children on the theme of water and wildlife, as well as photos of the mosaic installed on Lowden Road, will be on display at Pop Brixton, 49 Brixton Station Road, London SW9 8PQ until the 28th December.
The Brixton Windmill Memories exhibition has extended its stay at the Minet Library into October. This project interviewed 26 local residents about their memories of Brixton Windmill, the local area around the windmill, and the importance of bread and flour production. The interviews were an oral history project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the All Our Stories scheme. This was connected to an exhibition and a theatrical performance as part of the Big Lunch in May, and was introduced to the Minet as part of Lambeth Archives Open Day. Brixton Windmill also hopes to get grinding again by 2016 – its 200th birthday! The Minet is located at 52 Knatchbull Rd, London SE5 9QY.
