Artwork by James Mackenzie has been selected for the first Show Us Your Art festival to be held in Middlesbrough in September 2012 as part of the wider Discover Middlesbrough campaign.
Middlesbrough town centre is to be transformed into a giant art exhibition and artists from across the area have provided work to help us do it.
For three days in September, the Show Us Your Art movement, in association with mima, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, will be filling shops, cafes and even a church with the work of local artists, as well as selected works from mima’s own collection.
The event is being supported by the award winning Middlesbrough Institue of Modern Art (mima) and Middlesbrough Borough Council and this year we recived approaching 300 entries from local artists who wanted to have their work shown.
There will also be a virtual gallery. The town centre will be filled with posters carrying QR codes. Scan it with your mobile ‘phone and each poster will load an image of a different work by a local artist onto your ‘phone.
There will also be poetry, photography, interactive events and other fringe events around the town. More details on these as we get them.
