Art Around Town – novel use for pizza boxes
Around 300 artists are taking part in an Art Around Town exhibition in Bury St. Edmunds until the end of September.
Around 300 artists taking part in Bury St Edmunds Art Around Town project, were given a 10-inch pizza box and invited to transform it using the medium or technique of their choice to demonstrate what they think makes the Suffolk town tick.
The artists were invited to create artworks inspired by the characters, landmarks and best kept secrets that give Bury St Edmunds its unique feel. The finished artworks are being installed in some unexpected locations, such as the aviaries in the Abbey Gardens, and will be on display until the end of September.
To find out where you can see the pizza box artworks, you can pick up a free leaflet from The Apex and other venues around town, or visit the Art Around Town Instagram page @artaroundtownbury, where you can also find out more about the artists and the stories behind their boxes.
Creative people of all ages are also able to collect a free pizza box from The Apex entertainment venue to create their own design at home and return it before 19 July. The finished boxes will be displayed in the windows of The Apex.
Part of West Suffolk Council’s post pandemic summer recovery programme, Art Around Town has been set up in association with the Moments contemporary art exhibition, running until 30 September at Moyse’s Hall Museum. It is supported by local restaurant, ICE and Our Bury St Edmunds BID (Business Improvement District).
