Big heads among books

Southern Telegraph - - Entertainment -

Two City of Rock­ing­ham li­braries will come to life with art dur­ing Novem­ber as pieces from the Big Head Art Project go on dis­play at the Rock­ing­ham Cen­tral Li­brary and the Mary Davies Li­brary and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

The project was in­spired by the artis­tic ef­forts of 16 chil­dren who took part in the Art Ex­plo­sion Oc­to­ber school hol­i­day pro­gram at the Rock­ing­ham Arts Cen­tre.

Fa­cil­i­tated by artists Jacq Chorl­ton and Carol Clitheroe, chil­dren aged eight to 12 used their pa­pier mache skills to cre­ate large, wear­able, colour­ful heads.

Mayor Barry Sam­mels en­cour­aged the com­mu­nity to see the big heads up close.

“With sup­port from two fan­tas­tic artists in Jacq Chorl­ton and Carol Clitheroe, the chil­dren who took part in the Art Ex­plo­sion Oc­to­ber school hol­i­day pro­gram have cre­ated some

fan­tas­tic pieces of art,” he said. “Visi­tors to both the Rock­ing­ham Cen­tral Li­brary and the Mary Davies Li­brary and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre will be greeted by the art­work as they search the shelves for their favourite books.”

They will be on dis­play at the Mary Davies Li­brary and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre from Novem­ber 5-16 and the Rock­ing­ham Cen­tral Li­brary from Novem­ber 19-30.
