Quays Culture Festival 2021

The Colour Feed:

Fancy a Colour Swim? It's one of the free activities in the line-up of the Quays Festival 2021 which takes place in Salford, Manchester 14-15th August 2021. This year's festival is themed around Colour and as well as energising colourful dips in the quays, the festival will also see the unveiling of a new permanent art installation by local artist Liz West. 'Through No.4' will be located on the steps of Media City and is a development of a piece Liz created six years ago entitled 'Through No.3' which was on display in Spinningfields, Manchester. The imagery released for No.4  consists of lots of rainbow stripes, described by Liz as a 'multi-coloured striped cloak.' 

Anywhere that gets the Liz West touch becomes an instant visitor attraction and whatever this 'cloak' turns out to be, it will no doubt bring with it Liz's joyful, cheery vibes that's synonymous with all her vibrant public art installations.
