York Curiouser

You may have noticed a number of art installations appearing round the city in the last week or so, courtesy of York Curiouser, part of York University's Festival of Ideas.

Our own Julie Lightburn has been working on laser cutting some of the stencils used for painting a series of poems, In Between, about the snickets, passages and yards in York.   The stencils are applied in the places that inspired the poet -  John Wedgewood Clarke

a finished stencil

Passages from the poem are on walls in various sites across the city.  You can access a map of locations by clicking here

Thanks to Julie for the information and the pictures used above.
