EYE sculptures launch at Worthing Museum & Art Gallery
The EYE project (Eco, Young & Engaged) launched its new exhibition of environmentally friendly sculptures at the town’s art gallery last Friday. The exhibition, which is open to the public and runs until March 6th, is a collection of sculptures and other works of art produced by students at local schools who are part of the EYE project set up by Tim Loughton MP.
All the exhibits are made from recycled materials and range from a large windmill made out of old metal cans by Downsbrook School and a fish from St Andrew’s where the scales are represented by pieces of aluminium cans. The schools taking part include St Andrew’s, Downsbrook Middle, Worthing High School, Thomas A Beckett Middle, St Nicolas & St Mary and Eastbrook Primary.
Parents, pupils, staff and councillors crowded into the gallery at the museum to hear Tim Loughton explain the project which was started with the first ECO Summit held at Worthing Town Hall in March 2008, and to see the exhibition officially opened by Mayor Noel Atkins.
