LOVE WALK VISIT ART EXHIBITION

12 October 2017

A group of residents from Love Walk’s art class recently had their annual trip to the South Bank Centre to see the exhibition “Art by offenders, secure patients and detainees”.

 

Residents were touched by the paintings, sculpture, films and written art on display, as well as the stories behind some of the artists. They were given a tour of the exhibition and various works of art were explained to them in more detail. At the end of the exhibition everybody had the opportunity to write a note to any of the artists to say what they felt having seen their work.

 

“Afterwards we sat outside in the sunshine overlooking the River Thames and talked about what we liked about the exhibition. Everybody agreed that it was very thought-provoking”, noted Penny Brice, Activities Co-ordinator. “This is a very popular trip and we would all like to return next year.”
