Cathedral Sculpture

Another little piece on the Cathedral in Gloucester.

Some years ago they decided to give some space, both outside and in, to a modern sculpture exhibition. It took some organising on their part and the printers I worked for had the task of producing the catalogue.

The idea was a great success in almost every respect and brought people into Gloucester who normally would not venture there. Dozens of sculptures arrived by heavy lorry and were strategically scattered around the grounds and the building. So successful was it they did it again a couple of years later. These two images from the later show. The first is the main sculpture outside the front door of the building and the second is when they were taking it away.

I rather like the effect of the straps and webbing on the second, it looks like a part of it.

I wonder if they will have the good sense to do it again before too long.
