Routed in Barnsley Exhibition – Town Centre Trail Installation begins

12th January 2022

This wonderful exhibition in the Sadler Room at The Cooper Gallery includes fascinating pictures and photographs With the Routed in Barnsley exhibition now open in Experience Barnsley, the focus for the Routed project has moved to the creation and installation of a series of public realm interventions. The first of these has been installed in Centenary Square at the side of the Town Hall. The four utility boxes have had an injection of colour and design, transforming them from drab, featureless cabinets into vibrant, contemporary artworks.

Each design was inspired by a portrait photograph of someone who works in the town centre and is named after them – Rosanna, Claire, Jack and Fatou.

Further installations will appear in Church Fields over the coming weeks once the weather improves.
