BARNSLEY-BASED artists Lenny and Whale will be bringing their latest project ‘Sanctuary of Colour’ to the town this summer.

The project features artwork made from recycled furniture and it will travel around Barnsley, featuring at six different locations.

The first stop on the tour will be at Goldthorpe Embankment on Thursday, July 11 between 9am and 11.30am and will also include an art workshop.

The artwork will move later that day to Goldthorpe Town Square and can be experienced between 12.30pm to 3.30pm.

Lenny and Whale said: “We are really excited about ‘Sanctuary of Colour’ popping-up in each of the Principal Towns.

“It’s been a lot of fun hunting out locations for the artwork and we look forward meeting local people and hearing their reactions.

“Alongside the installations, we will be sharing art and music activities for people to get involved in.”

Jon Finch, head of culture and visitor economy, said: “Barnsley is full of culture in every part of the borough.

“There is so much to enjoy and experience.

“This exciting project will bring vibrancy and animation to our towns and villages, where our communities live, work and visit.

“We think that art can make people feel better and healthier, and that everyone should be able to experience it.

“This is how we are making culture part of people’s lives.”
