Blackpool Art Car Boot
In the summer of 2016 Arrested ReDevolpment planned a unique art sale for Blackpool, to take place in St. John's Square in the town centre. Working alongside the Blackpool BID, the Art Car Boot was an opportunity for local artists to sell their wares from the back of their cars, but in the surroundings of the main town square rather than a muddy field.
Unfortunately due to the unpredictability of the British weather the event had to take place indoors. Thanks to the Winter Gardens we were able to advantage of the space in the Grand Vestibule, a fine space to utilise.
The event attracted around a dozen artists to exhibit their work to the public and the response was favourable all round.
Fingers crossed the event will take place again, hopefully taking advantage of the outdoor space and creating a true Art Car Boot.
