Take part in Land Art trail in Knowsley parks

by Alison Cornmell

Later this summer, renowned land artist James Brunt is coming to Knowsley to create a number of unique art installations created with natural and found materials in some of the borough’s most loved parks

The project is called United by Land and in anticipation of its arrival some special, smaller-scale installations will ‘pop-up’ in locations across the borough and we want you to solve daily clues to discover them.

This week, from Tuesday 12 – Friday 15 July clues leading to the artworks whereabouts will be shared on the Culture Knowsley social media channels, look out for them on InstagramTwitter and Facebook.

As well as this pop-up land art trail James has also been working with Knowsley primary school children to create land art within school grounds. You can read more about this on the Culture Knowsley website where there are some pictures of the work they have created – www.cultureknowsley.co.uk/land-art-in-schools/
