Iconic images installation at Yeovil Library
Released On 18th Nov 2021
With the support from The European Regional Development Fund's Welcome Back Fund (administered by HMG and South Somerset District Council), Love Yeovil commissioned Yeovil Art Space to work with artist Richard Tomlinson to put together an exciting animated window display which can now be seen at the front of the Yeovil Library, starting from the Christmas Light Switch on event on Friday 19 November.
The projection is based on a sequence of images from Shapes of Yeovil, a public realm artwork created by You & Me Architects, part of Yeovil Refresh Art Project for the high street regeneration happening right now in the town centre.
Shapes of Yeovil is the outcome of a number of workshops that have taken place in the Yeovil community, looking at the town's heritage and culture through different generations. You can see this collection of iconic images about Yeovil projected from the front windows of the town library, including gloves, helicopter propellers and buildings imposed on the natural landscape around Yeovil such as Nine Springs, the Millennium Tower, Wyndham Hill and more.
Zoe Li, Project Director at Yeovil Art Space says of the installation,
"We hope you enjoy the projection during this dark time of the year. We want to celebrate the creativity and heritage of Yeovil which we can bring to our community."
