A new Artwork at Loughborough Junction

At some point in August this new artwork was hung on the Green Man Skills Centre.

It is a Shimmer Wall Green Man which shimmers and sparkles in the sunshine.  A collaboration organised by Sunshine International Arts & 40 + local residents in November 2016.

It was funded by Matthew Betts, the Landlord of the building with assistance from Shimmerwalls UK.  Matthew is responsible for the regeneration of the old Green Man pub which was looking rather sad and run down after it’s closure in 2003. A trailblazer for the regeneration now happening in Loughborough Junction.

The Green Man is a symbol of rebirth and regeneration. Here is a link to Green Man on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Man
