New artistic welcome on arrival at Leeds Station
Commuters arriving at Leeds Station are being greeted with a new city welcome courtesy of LeedsBID.
New artwork has been installed for the Windows of Leeds letters which stand on the station’s south concourse.
The new inserts are the work of Leeds College of Art graduate Abi Moffat who has created an abstract and textured interpretation of the city. Each letter has a different theme from the changing culture of day to night-life, colours of the city, the variety of architecture, place and people, and the environment and weather.
The letters, a 2-metre-high typographic sculpture, provide local artists a platform to shine a light on Leeds’ hugely talented visual art community while giving an iconic welcome to the station and the city.
Andrew Cooper, LeedsBID Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to be unveiling the next view for the Windows of Leeds and providing a public platform to showcase the city’s artistic talent to local, national and international visitors.”
“This on-going project is part of LeedsBID’s commitment to enhancing the overall welcome to the city – achieved in a contemporary and visible way for people to appreciate and enjoy.”
