An exhibition of concepts, designs, drawings and samples of work. ‘The important industrial town of Northwich is currently undergoing significant change. Its ongoing regeneration has given rise to a number of opportunities to install art in its public areas. Renowned artist, Katayoun Dowlatshahi has been working with the people of Northwich to integrate public art into new and existing schemes. This exhibition examines 3 major commissions which celebrate the architecture and heritage of the town from their conception through development to their final realisation.’
