Thursday 22nd February 2018

Join us for the launch of the Smart Murals pilot project at Solent University’s Spark Atrium, on the 22nd February 2018 from 17.30 to 19.00.

The South East Museum Development Programme is a partner in an exciting is an Arts Council funded initiative led by Southampton Solent University, which aims to engage a younger demographic with Southampton City Art Gallery’s outstanding collection. Other partners include Southampton City Art Gallery, Winchester School of Art and the digital SME, Enova.

Our pilot project has digitally enabled just one artwork: ‘DeerDog’ (2004) by Dan Perfect. This exciting piece of contemporary art was selected for the project in consultation with 16-24 year olds at Winchester University, Winchester School of Art, Solent University and City College.

At the launch, refreshments and an introduction to the project will be followed by the chance to try out the mural and give feedback on the project and its possible future developments.

The project team would like to thank Southampton City College and Mettricks Guildhall for their support in offering offsite locations for the display of Smart Murals.
