The Big Blueprint project is an exciting and innovative project, which commissions three new art works for the south facing side of the Big Screen, in central Plymouth.

Plymouth City Council's Arts Unit, Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, The BBC, and the City Centre Company have collaborated on the project whose aim is to celebrate Plymouth's ambition for the Olympics and local Olympians, as well as the championing and enhancing our cultural offer and local heritage.

The Artist says; “The location of the Big Screen is excellent as it reminds both visitors and residents of our strong connection to the sea. I wanted to encourage people to think about the freedom of water and their relationship to it. People's lives are busy, but I hope this picture will prompt people to stop and think amongst the hustle and bustle of the city centre."

COMMONWEALTH ARTS AND CRAFTS AWARD

 

CHARLES HENRY FOYLE TRUST AWARD FOR TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE IN STITCHED TEXTILES 2003

Commonwealth arts and crafts awards 2005

By: Paul Stone

Lee-Anne Hampson is the UK-based winner of the 2005 Commonwealth Arts and Crafts Awards.

The awards are granted every two years to young artists from across the Commonwealth who have shown exceptional promise in their own country but have had little opportunity to work abroad. Recipients are funded to travel to another Commonwealth country, work alongside that country’s artists, and mount an exhibition of their work at the end of their visit. Hampson will visit Papua New Guinea in the summer of 2006 after completing her current residency at Radley College, Oxford. Having already visited New Zealand and Fiji, she will further research Pacific art forms of carved masks and statues. Selected from over 170 entries from artists and arts administrators, eleven awards in total were granted. The other ten recipients are: printmaker and installation artist Dimple Shah and sculptors Nutan Bala and Dhananjay Kumar (India); painter Kabelo Kim Modise (Botswana); textile artist Bryan Duncan (Jamaica); painter Mary Ogembo (Kenya); installation artist Marnie Slater (New Zealand); printmaker Fatima Saeed (Pakistan); painter and printmaker Sheku Mansaray (Sierra Leone); and painter Stary Mwaba (Zambia).
