So, should the rain stop and summer return to these parts, Wembley Park's Art Trail is definitely an option for a leisurely stroll, enjoying the open air and at the same time sampling artworks created specifically to be seen in this particular physical context, making full use of the neighbourhood's design features.
This year four new works have been added to the existing 10 pieces across various mediums, including paint, digital mixed media and upcycled materials. They are:
Against the Odds, by Micah Purnell, a work produced during lockdown on the subject of community. Also by Micah Purnell is Power in Unity (pictured top), which occupies Wembley Park's famous Spanish Steps, and illustrates a sense of togetherness and hope in tough times;
Inside Out London, by the renowned photographer JR, consists of black-and-white images of Londoners' faces. This work extends beyond Wembley Park, with images posted in various locations across the city and the Inside Out Photobooth travelling around and inviting Londoners to have their pictures taken.
Meadows of Change, by HagenHinderdael, is set into original K-2 phone boxes turned into mini pop-up art galleries, a work celebrating the many layers of Wembley's history.
The Art Trail is part of Wembley Park's extensive cultural programme Summer of Play. You can get a free map to help you on your way by clicking here.
