The Grotto Project with Lucy Harvey Sat 6th June




The Grotto Project is a collaborative project and sculpture inspired by the romanticisation of heritage. The Grotto Project will gather together historic objects and stories from around Sale to create an immersive installation inspired by archaeology and museum collections. Artist Lucy Harvey is working with local residents to create the sculpture inspired by the social history of Sale in The Square Shopping Centre as part of Sale Arts Trail 2015.

Get involved with the project by joining Lucy on a free Art and Archaeology Trail to collect objects for the final installation for Sale Arts Trail 2015. The trail starts outside Waterside Arts Centre Saturday 6th June, 11am, reserve your place on Eventbrite:

A Family Art & Archaeology Trail runs from Sale West Community Centre on Saturday 13th June, check out The Grotto Project blog to find out more information:

The Grotto Project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England; and with kind support from Sale Locality Partnership with funding from Make Sale Smile.
