Liverpool to honour Titanic sinking centenary with street art event ‘to rival La Machine spider’ – Liverpool Local News – News – Liverpool Echo.
A HUGE street art exhibition to rival the giant Capital of Culture spider is being planned for Liverpool’s commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
The city is set to host a series of events next April which also include a production at the Empire and a new exhibition at the Maritime Museum.
The centre piece will be a street art event which will be “bigger and better” than the giant La Machine spider.
More than 200,000 turned out to see the giant 50ft spider that captivated Liverpool for five days in 2008. It was one of the most memorable events of the city’s year in the spotlight.
Cabinet member for culture and tourism Wendy Simon said: “We are in the closing stages of finalising our plans for next year, hopefully the details will be released in the next month.
“It is going to be bigger and better [than the Spider], it’s fantastic.”
