Hard-hitting artwork for Shelter milestone
A HARD-HITTING artwork will be displayed at three charity shops in the North-east to mark its 50th anniversary. Shelter Scotland will feature the piece, created by young designers from the Glasgow School of Art (GSA), to mark the occasion.
Third year communication design students Claire Mcnally and Andrew Johnston’s design takes the shape of a noticeboard which displays household bills, receipts and arrears letters to represent those who struggle to keep a roof over their heads.
The display will be in all Shelter Scotland’s 37 shops, including on Union Street and George Street in Aberdeen and at its shop on Broad Street, Fraserburgh.
Graeme Brown, director of the charity, said: “The design in the shape of a noticeboard depicts all too clearly the struggles faced by many families and individuals in Scotland to make ends meet and keep a roof over their heads. “I encourage local people to visit the shops and take in the messages this excellent work conveys.”
