This artwork is part of ‘Very Public Art’ a celebration of outdoor, public art taking place across Liverpool’s Quarters. For more information on Very Public Art and to see more artworks, visit our specially created page.

Cowherd and the Weaver Girl is an immersive outdoor stage design which depicts a scene from the mythological story around which the Chinese festival, Qixi is based.

The installation invites friends, family’s and lovers to step into a giant pop up story book to become a feature in the narrative, where a flock of magpies form a bridge to reunite a family split between heaven and Earth.

Qixi falls on 14th August – Chinese Valentines Day – a chance to celebrate love, culture, friendship and community.

Please hashtag your photographs #cowherd #qixi and share on instagram so together we can create a photo album of love in the city.

Cowheard and Weaver Girl has been commissioned by Culture Liverpool and supported by Arts Council England.
