Sunflowers at New Covent Garden Flower Market
A Space for Flowers: The New Covent Garden Flower Market 05/03/15 - 11/05/15
This exhibition celebrates a community arts project led by Our Hut and funded by the Heritage Lottery. It focuses on the inspiring architecture and work of New Covent Garden Flower Market and will contain archive material and a range of creative responses to the existing building including models, photographs, drawings and films from school children, students and local community groups.
Visitors will be able to listen to excerpts of interviews about the market, what it is like for people working there, the history and connection to the old Covent Garden Market and the changes that are happening. The exhibition is the culmination of a project to record and celebrate the current market in Nine Elms, South London before the phased redevelopment of the site which will include additional uses alongside the wholesale markets.
