Landmarks

Landmarks (formerly Belfast Wheel) is a visual arts / art in public project.

Landmarks is a visual arts project which celebrates place and people.

Participants are guided through a process by an artist/facilitator who supports them to express their views of the world, local area or a theme of particular resonance in their community. There is also the option of working with neighbouring groups from different communities to co-create artworks inspired by a common theme.

Skills and media range from mosaic, textiles, paper craft, sculpture, ceramics and others.

Joint pieces produced in the past have included two large scale sculptures: Belfast Wheel in King William Park (Belfast) and The Sails mosaics on the front of Cotton Court building in Waring Street (Belfast).
