Portrait of Rotherham 1997
27 steel panels each measuring 4m high x 3 m
made with images from the six most local primary schools to the town centre.
In the mid 1990s the bus station in Rotherham was a grimey fume ridden grey concrete cave, through which 19 million passenger journeys arrived or departed annually. (The figures for Heathrow at that time were 24 million annually) The Transport Interchange was to have a £3 million face lift/ Hilary Cartmel won the commission to transform the 'windows' along the runways through a series of workshops with local schools and industry to realise images that would tell a story of the Town, its trees and buildings, its industry, its landscape and history
