If you’ve wandered by Central Library recently, you’ll have noticed a new addition to the decor.
Painted over the course of three days, artist Lucy McLauchlan was given permission by Central Library and Birmingham City Council Planning to give the infamous brutalist library a make over. The project is part of the ongoing work of EC-Arts.
It was Lucy’s wish to produce one of her infamous murals in Birmingham to simply ‘beautify the city’. This coupled with EC-Arts motivation to commission artistic interventions, temporary and permanent within the public realm, utilising architecture where possible was the foundation for the Library project.
Lucy’s written a post about it with a few more pictures.
It’s still unknown as to how long the birds will be allowed to stay, so go take a look while you can.
