An art work in bright autumn colours is cheering up the entrance to Crow Recycling thanks to the Coventry City of Culture artist on my street scheme.
Artist Janet Tryner visited Crow to create the leaf themed work in the windows at the front of the Crow Recycling warehouse in Sparkbrook Street, Hillfields, Coventry. The work even features a black Crow honouring the acronym Coventry Recycling of Waste from which Crow Recycling gets its name.
The artwork is part of the artist on my street scheme which involves 21 artists creating artworks in windows in streets in Coventry and Warwickshire. The art works are funded by Coventry City of Culture.
Lucy Lynch, Crow Recycling’s admin and external relations officer, said: “Not many warehouses have a piece of art created for them so we’re really pleased. If you’re visiting Crow or dropping in at the Love Coventry second hand shop next door or the Hope Centre cafe at the top of the street make sure to take a look at the art work while you’re there.”
Some of the materials in the art work came from Crow Recycling’s Scrapstore, a membership shop selling reused items for arts and crafts.
Crow Recycling is a registered charity providing work placements for people with disabilities.
Other artist in my street locations to look out for are the Broad Street Hall in Foleshill, Coventry, and the Moat Street Leisure and Neighbourhood Centre in Wood End, Coventry.
