A MOTH FOR AMY (Amy Johnson Festival)
My 3d mosaic moth ‘Aspire’ was commissioned by the NHS Commissioning Group and installed in Bransholme South Health Centre, Goodhart Road, Bransholme , Kingston Upon Hull, HU7 4DW from 1 July 2016 until 31 March 2017.
Here are some more details about the festival from the organisers: ‘It is a well-known fact that Amy Johnson flew a De Havilland Gipsy Moth plane on her solo flight to Australia. Inspired by this, we worked with sculptor Saffron Waghorn to create a wonderful giant Mother Moth. From here, 60 moth sculptures were hatched for a Moth Trail that will take you on a journey through Hull, the surrounding East Riding area and beyond!
Colourful and vibrant, each sculpture has been lovingly decorated with unique designs by artists from across the globe as well as local community groups.
A map of where all of the moths are located is available on our website and in printed form available from Tourist Information Centres, libraries, museums, shops and other venues, so that you can plan a fun day out moth-spotting with your family and friends!'
