TEN ARTISTS, TEN VENUES, ONE NIGHT!
Pete McKee Presents... PUB SCRAWL 2012
For one night only in January Pete McKee brings you art in pubs... a pub crawl like no other.
Pub scrawl 2012 will showcase ten of Pete’s favourite artists with ten of Sheffield’s finest watering holes.
Warp Films, Nick Deakin, Lord Bunn, Ian Anderson/tDR, Geo, Sarah Abbott, Tado, Fauagraphic, Fine and Dandy and Tom J Newell will be exhibiting in one venue each on the big night, Friday 20 January.
The event runs as a pub crawl and the venues included are: The University Arms, The Harley, The Bath Hotel, The Bowery, The Washington, Forum, The Frog and Parrot, The Great Gatsby, Bungalows and Bears and Dada’s. We will be keeping who is exhibiting in which venue a secret until the night of the event.
Each artist will create artwork in their designated venue, using it as a canvas. This could be anything from hanging a picture on the wall to a visual installation. Each venue promises to be different from the last creating a unique art experience across the city.
“I’ve set up a series of exhibitions by a selection of Sheffield artists who I admire, who inspire me, and keep me on my toes. I’ve asked ten artists to participate in a pub crawl of ten hostelries. Each artist is given a separate pub to work with, for one night only. The fantastic thing is the enthusiasm that the artists have had for the project, and the desire to push their own boundaries and try something out of the ordinary.”
