11:53am Tuesday 4th September 2012 in News
DREAM appeared on prime time TV again last week highlighting the connection between art and the community.
Alex Riley from BBC’s the One Show took a stroll up the former mine at Sutton Manor last Wednesday to see for himself the stunning artwork by world renowned Catalan artist Jaume Plensa.
Gary Conley, the ex-miner at Sutton Manor and Dream’s biggest champion explained: “They were filming for a future feature on public art and the benefits it brings to a local community.
“They were really impressed with what had been achieved in bringing a world class sculpture by a renowned artist, through external funding sources, into a small town like ours and works of art like Dream are normally associated with major towns and cities.
“I stressed in the interview that for me Dream gives St Helens a unique identity.”
