HIVEJACKED- A TRAM STOP TAKEOVER

This festive season the tram stops along Blackpool’s famous seafront will be taken over by several local artists, displaying their work in a unique open-air gallery.

HIVEArts are ‘Hivejacking’ the tram stops between the South and North piers, with each shelter along the route displaying large scale works from two different artists representing a cross section of styles and imagery from 28 members of Blackpool’s artistic community.

 

The artists involved have previously worked and exhibited with local community arts groups HIVEArts and Arrested ReDevelopment, with huge and continuing support from HIVE café, situated within the local town centre.

Building on previous successful local and national exhibitions held at HIVEBpl, and with the much-appreciated support of Blackpool Council and Blackpool Transport, this project will bring a free open-air art exhibition, with access for all, to the Promenade.

The works will be on display from Friday 18th December 2020 to Saturday 2nd January 2021at each stop on both sides of the tracks.

To create compressed charcoal or charcoal pencils natural gum or wax binder is added to powdered charcoal. This makes the charcoal stronger to draw with and produce less dust. Many grades of this compressed charcoal can be found in stick forms or in the form of charcoal pencils.
