We Face Forward - 'Rags to Riches' @Manchester Art Gallery, Part 2

  [gallery]

Round Two!

These pictures were taken in the ‘Rags to Riches’ summer family workshops at Manchester Art Gallery as part of the We Face Forward festival across Manchester.

Further inspired by Nnenna Okore’s artwork ‘When the Heavens Meet the Earth’, we decided to take all of the newspaper transformations made by families in the exhibition and connected them together to form this beautiful paper installation in Studio 2. The light, shadow and music by Jali really added to the atmosphere to make a calm, peaceful and captivating space - popular with young and old alike!
