‘A Window Into Oxfam’ at Central Library (Picton Rm)


Good to see another exhibition in the fantastic Picton Room at Central Library and I see that the Beatles exhibition ‘Another Hard Day’s Night‘ is still on there. It was scheduled to finish months ago but has been so popular it will be running for a while yet.

‘A Window Into Oxfam’ is a range of vibrant window displays designed by students at Carmel College St Helens. It launched at the Liverpool Central Library’s Picton Room tonight and is open to the public from Thursday 8th May until Sunday 11th May 2008.

This was an excellent idea for an A level art project with splendid results. If I had not known I would have thought they had been produced by far more experienced designers.

In all, 18 of Carmel’s talented art students have taken part in the three-month project and created an amazing range of designs promoting Oxfam and their stores. Four designs were chosen for the store windows on Bold Street, Liverpool and at West Kirby.
