Our Deckchairs...at the Olympics!

<p>We are delighted to have supplied the deckchairs for the Olympic Deckchairs project, which is part of <a href="http://www.dorsetforyou.com/weymouthandportland/" target="_blank">Weymouth and Portland Borough Council's</a> 2012 Public Art Commissioning Programme, part funded by <a href="http://www.artscouncil.org.uk/" target="_blank">Arts Council England</a> for <a href="http://www.london2012.com/" target="_blank">London 2012.</a></p> <p>Three artists worked with local people to design the canvasses for 500 deckchairs that will be on show on Weymouth Esplanade throughout the Olympic Sailing Events. The pictures above are just a few from the <a href="http://olympicdeckchairs.tumblr.com/" target="_blank">Tumblr Blog</a> set up to document the process of designing the chairs. For more information on the project, visit <a href="http://www.artscouncil.org.uk/news/arts-council-news/deckchairs-difference-brighten-weymouth-seafront/" target="_blank">Arts Council England's website</a>. We think they look great and are proud to be involved - amazing work all!!</p>
