WARHOLES

Warholes is the first in a series of gallery interventions at The Wilson and part of The Cheltenham Trust’s Summer of Play programme for 2018.

Wilson Arts Collective is hosting an intriguing crazy golf course inspired by 9 famous artists including ‘Andy Warhole’, ‘Pablo Parcasso’ and ‘Vincent VanGolf’. This intervention takes place between Thursday 5 and Saturday 7 July and gives you the chance to enjoy, play and discover art in a different way.

There will be a special late night event on Saturday 7 July with music, drinks, art and of course crazy golf, 7-10pm.

A further four interventions follow on from Warholes, all by local creatives who will transform our third floor gallery into a space for you to come and have fun, be curious experiment, problem solve and express yourself through play.  It’s a space to have fun!

A PLACE VISION FOR CHELTENHAM

In 2018, Cheltenham Council launched their Place Strategy, “a vision about how people can work together to realise the ambitions and aspirations of the town, and make sure Cheltenham remains an amazing place, a place where everyone thrives.”

This short film is a response to this strategy made by young creative people living and working in the town. It is honest and hopefully useful.

Over 50 young people aged between 15 and 25 were involved in producing this film in some way, from giving their opinion to helping on the film production.

This project was supported by the insanely talented local poet, musician and WAC associate artist JDPL.

 

 

PHONE BOX EXHIBITION

The Phone Boxes will be filled with an installation that corresponds with The Order of Things exhibition at The Wilson.

As a collaboration between The Wilson and the Wilson Art Collective, the installation will be a result of an open-call for work, with specific works being created for the spaces by members of WAC.
