Artist. Lucy McLauchlan
Birds ‘perch’ on the Brutalist-style Birmingham Central Library – a huge inverted concrete ziggurat built in 1974, designed by Architect John Madin.
Project by Claire Farrell of EC-Arts supported in kind by The Central Library and Birmingham City Council; with many thanks to Brian Gambles, Nigel Edmondson and Sue Round and her team.
Artist Lucy McLauchlan is from Birmingham and works all over the world exhibiting her work in galleries and the public realm. Lucy has recently been published in ‘Beyond the Street – the 100 leading figures in Urban Art”. Lucy had not, to date been commissioned to produce any work for such a high profile location within Birmingham. The artist wished to ‘beautify the city’.
