Cold Bath Slow Art

No items found.

Chrysalis Arts was awarded a Tour de France cultural commission to create a Slow Art project in 2014 as part of the Cultural Festival. Cold Bath Road Slow Art was developed in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council’s Highways Department and a team of artists, including the visual artists Josie Beszant, Kate Maddison, Serena Partridge and artist, puppeteer and performer Viv Mousdell.

The project was designed to be viewed on foot via the creation of a trail intended to slow down traffic along Cold Bath Road, and encourage visitors to explore an area of the town outside the major shopping streets. Artists’ installation pieces were commissioned and placed in shop windows and a promenade performance piece was created, culminating on the site of an original spring.  The entire street was decorated with flags and artworks made in community workshops and via an extensive workshop programme in the local primary school. The project was warmly received and added to Harrogate’s cultural offer during the Festival.

We assembled alongside the wood, down the lane from Marton Cum Grafton. There were around a dozen of us, along with fungus expert Andy joining us to guide our journey.

Decomposition/recomposition

Sue Harrison

With birdsong now long gone (save for that of the territorial Robin), today’s visit heralded another change of season - and with it, another change of focus.

and breathe

Sue Harrison

So here I was, back again to see if the Chiffchaff which greeted me on my first visit had successfully reared a brood of chicks.
