Art under the Flyover is a continuing programme of arts in the Cumberland Piazza aiming to enliven and regenerate this iconic space.
In the 1960’s streets in Hotwells were cleared to make way for a flyover and the area underneath was re-designed by landscape architect, Sylvia Crowe. For years the space has remained derelict- there used to be fountains and playparks. Local people of all ages have diverse ideas for the future, a roller coaster, a tennis court and even an urban beach!
2013 Green Days Out greendaysout.info and Hotwells Arts commissioned artist Claire Sharpe who created some beautiful tensile screens. West Bristol Arts Trail 12th/13th October 2013, saw artists with long term local connections devise interventions to evoke the past, present and future with media including print, poetry, video, audio and paint.
2014 is the year of tree planting, new planters, semi permanent surface interventions, painted pillars and a young peoples’ participation project working towards a space for wheels and other sports. See ‘Future Events’ for more in formation on 2014.
Who are we? Hotwells Arts is an informal group of people interested in local arts. We welcome anyone with ideas of what would improve the environment. Project management/coordination- Anna Wilson & Joanna Espinner
