Saffron Walden Town Council is pleased Jubilee Garden has been chosen as a venue in an upcoming art installation.

Modern Mythologies artists Walter & Zoniel are running a poetic treasure hunt, with a public art installation across Essex, with the support of Essex County Council Arts and Cultural Fund.

The artists will prepare poetry using words and phrases suggested by residents; to that end individuals are invited to suggest phrases for inclusion in the art installation – perhaps a cherished memory, a tradition or event! The artists will craft these heartfelt submissions into a poetic narrative that reflects the collective soul of Essex.

Said a representative of the project “As the autumn sun casts its golden glow upon Essex’s picturesque landscape, the poetic verses will begin to flourish, transforming the open grasslands into a lyrical symphony. This captivating art installation will be a beacon of unity, encapsulating the essence of Essex and the souls that resonate within it.”

The artwork will be installed on Friday 8 September 2023.
