Involuntary Painting 1 New Parks : New York Installation

February 3rd 2016 - the official opening of Involuntary Painting 1 New Parks : New York, a public art work conceived by Artists Millree Hughes and Paul Conneally and incorporated into the fabric of New Parks Centre Library, Leicester.

The work was made with members of the Creative New Parks group with input from artists in New York, with and for SoftTouch Arts Leicester City Council Libraries and Arts Council England.

This photograph shows one element of the work, a kerb and tyre mark on St Oswald Road, opposite the library and seen in this photograph through the library window, identified and photographed in series as an involuntary painting by local resident Colin Murphy with Conneally and now applied to the windows of the library itself.

This is just one element of the whole IP1NPNY installation which can be viewed and occupied daily (except Sundays) from today onwards at New Parks Library which is itself part of the work.
