Art around Town

 

Art and culture played a key role in Bury St Edmunds post pandemic summer 2021 recovery programme. 

In their latest project, Art Around Town gave over 500 local artists a 10-inch pizza box and invited them to ‘think outside the box’ and transform it in their own style to demonstrate what they think makes the town tick.

The artworks were displayed in the windows of shops and public buildings in the town centre from 1 July until 30 September 2021. 

The artists were invited to create artworks inspired by the characters, landmarks and best kept secrets that give Bury St Edmunds its unique feel. 

 

 

The beautiful Guildhall Gardens and the ‘Moments’ Exhibition at Moyses Hall, specifically Banksy’s work  ‘Girl with Balloon’ were the inspiration for the following ‘Pizza boxes’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following Pizza boxes were made using Barley and Spelt grains, referencing Bury’s brewing heritage and the agriculture surrounding the town.
