After ongoing lockdown restrictions this year, we’ve all been looking for something to brighten our day – and visitors to the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York will get just that!
The vibrant new art installation was unveiled at the weekend, and is in collaboration with local artist Emma Hardaker, whose passion is to create art in public spaces.
The eye-catching shades of blue, pink and orange are sure to catch your eye on your next visit! Plus, it would make a great selfie background…
Born and bred in Yorkshire, Emma Hardaker’s work is best-known for its abstract style and bright colours.
Interested in creating artwork to be enjoyed by everyone, she has produced multiple public installations across the region and beyond – including the NHS and Leeds City Council.
Art for everyone to enjoy
Emma Hardaker said, “It has been great to work with McArthurGlen York on their new in centre mural. Following a challenging year, it is always great to bring new art to public spaces for everyone to enjoy!
“I love creating unexpected art encounters in the public realm, like this one and look forward to seeing how people engage with the work and hope it will bring some joy to the visitors at McArthurGlen!”
Centre manager Paul Tyler said “After a year which has taught us the importance of the community around us, we’re proud to be unveiling our installation with local artist Emma Hardaker in celebration of the vibrancy of York.
“The artwork will brighten up the centre whilst also showcasing our support for the arts and culture sector.”
