In celebration of World Earth Day, St Anns Shopping Centre in Harrow Town Centre have launched an art exhibition in support of the WWF.
The exhibition will be “delving into what climate change means to the local Harrow community” say the organisers, and will include various art forms, from paintings, drawings, sculptures to photography, paper creations and canvas prints – appealing to all ages, with contributors that span generations from nursery school to the older generation.
The exhibition is just one of many exciting things happening in Harrow Town Centre as we head into the summer, lots more to be revealed soon.
The Mayor of Harrow, Councillor Ghazanfar Ali, opened the exhibition on the 22nd April. Addressing the critical issue of climate change, he said: “We have beautiful parks, gardens and green beds in Harrow, and we want our community to come forward to protect what we have and prevent further damage to our planet.”
The exhibition is held on the lower mall the unit between Boots and Sports Direct, and is open daily to the public, free of charge, between the hours of 10am-5pm Monday through Saturday, and 11am-5pm on Sundays, and will be open to the public into July 2022.
David Robinson, Centre Manager at St Anns Shopping Centre, said: “We are delighted with the overwhelming response from our community who answered our appeal, and have come together to support, and explore the issue of climate change by producing and donating their works of art – some of which will be sold to help raise funds for WWF. I would once again like to thank everyone who has contributed to this project, and for all those visiting the exhibition, and making donations to support WWF’s efforts to combat climate change.”
