My Subject is War – Animated Exhibition
Ticket Price: FREE
My Subject is War is a multi-disciplinary visual arts project exploring Warrington’s role in the First World War (1914-18).
Illustrator and artist Emma Brown has created window murals and an exhibition of animated work focusing on local war stories, hospitals, industry and propaganda.
This exhibition features animated illustrations to complement the body of work comprising illustrations on glass at Pyramid box office, Contact Warrington and Golden Square Shopping Centre across key sites in the Town Centre. On 19 March 2015 Emma conducted a ‘live art’ session at Contact Warrington in the town centre.
During the day she added to her vinyl artwork depicting Warrington in the First World War illustrating additional scenes directly onto the glass. A time-lapse video of the ‘live art’ session has been produced by Tony Culpin documenting the drawing process. The artwork is on display at Contact Warrington for the next year as part of Warrington’s First World War Centenary programme.
