A “splash of art, colour and poetry in difficult times” has been installed in Llandrindod Wells.
Volunteers at arts and health charity Celf o Gwmpas were busy on Tuesday (March 23) putting in place the permanent outdoor art installation depicting some of the town’s key sites and buildings.
Partially funded by Powys County Council and supported by discount store Bargain Buys, the artwork consists of eight large panels stretching over 80 metres.
The piece was made by artist Andrew Smith is a former Director of Fine Art at Bangor University who has taken part in several community arts projects in Cardiff and other European cities.
In addition to the art installation, Celf o Gwmpas has been funded to employ a poet who will be spending time speaking to people in Llandrindod Wells and to “capture the essence of the town and its wonderful Victorian architecture”.
