ABERDEEN INSPIRED INVITE PUPILS TO NOMINATE THEIR “EVERYDAY HEROES” TO ADD TO STREET ART INSTALLATION ON MARISCHAL SQUARE
As a “refresh” of the hugely popular Everyday Heroes art installation, Aberdeen Inspired, along with funding partners, The McGinty Group and Burness Paull LLP, are inviting pupils to suggest new “Heroes” to be added to a prominent wall in Aberdeen. Made up of images on individual tiles, and situated on an outer wall of Marischal Square, along Netherkirkgate, our current Everyday Heroes feature such diverse characters as 19th century explorer and sea captain, William Penny, current Doric champion and poet, Sheena Blackhall and our very own Caroline Thomson who tragically lost her battle with cancer.
Pupils are invited to consider and nominate local “Everyday Heores”, either past or present; they might be famous or simply known for their deeds within their local community. The only stipulation is that the nominated hero must have spent at least part of their life living and/working (or studying) in Aberdeen. Six new Everyday Heroes are to be chosen, and the new artwork will be installed in early November. Just prior to that, those who have suggested the chosen heroes will be invited along to local artist, Shelagh Swanson’s studio, to help put the finishing touches to the new tiles she will produce for this latest installation. Two of the six new “Everyday Heroes” will be selected from Pupils’ nominations.
