Shrewsbury Videographer Captures Sculpture Trail
18 Jul 2022

You can't fail to miss the glittering, giant sculptures by world-renowned artist Andrew Logan through Shrewsbury town centre.

To mark this major undertaking by Shrewsbury Arts Trail, which has brought these amazing artworks to town in partnership with Shrewsbury BID, videographer Aaron Child has created a series of short films, showing visitors interacting with the sculptures.

The trail is turning heads across town, with shoppers and visitors to the town centre enjoying snapping selfies with the mirrored installations. They will be on display until the end of August.

Emma Molyneux, of Shrewsbury BID, said: “The sculptures look absolutely stunning in their town centre locations, and we felt the best way of capturing their scale and brilliance was through a series of videos. 
“Aaron Child has done a great job, and will be sharing the videos across the Original Shrewsbury social media channels during the summer.”

The sculpture trail, supported by Shrewsbury BID, is just one of many 'supersized' attractions brought to us by the Shrewsbury Arts Trail this summer - you might also have visited the major 'Be Inspired' exhibition at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery too, which features big names in the art world, including Banksy, Andy Warhol and Damian Hirst. 

Shrewsbury Arts Trail Organiser Jess Richards, of Shrewsbury Arts and Crafts, says the trail has grown into a real success since its debut last year: “We were delighted to launch the trail at a major exhibition at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery on July 9, and that exhibition will be open all throughout the trail until August 31. 

“We have a variety of works by some truly world-famous artists, including a JMW Turner painting recently discovered in the Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery archives, alongside artwork by local artists, inspired by and responding to these established names. 
“The giant sculptures dotted around the town centre are an integral part of the trail, and we are grateful to Shrewsbury BID for their support - the sculptures are already attracting a lot of attention and look fabulous.” 

A children’s treasure hunt will be running throughout the trail, with prizes on offer including tickets to the David Walliams’ Demon Dentist show at Theatre Severn. Other events include a glass festival at St Mary’s Church on August 6 and a secret artist sale at The Soden Collection on August 20 and 21. For more information, visit www.shrewsburyartstrail.com/
