A major community art exhibition has been launched for Borough of Culture 2021, and you can be part of it


Halton is Borough of Culture for 2021, under the banner of Celebrate Halton, and as part of the Halton MakeFest project, Mako Create have designed the Pixel Art Wall, a bespoke, one of a kind, collaborative and community-based art exhibition.

This long-term/large-scale Pixel Art project will involve artwork from more than 1,000 local residents of Halton (and beyond) in a collaborative exhibition at the Culture HQ in Runcorn Shopping City.

The display itself is large, measuring in at 4 metres wide, but it will be almost entirely made up of over 1,000 tiny pieces of pixel art, measuring just 60mm x 60mm each.

Each tiny piece of Pixel Art will be designed by members of the public, so any aspiring artist from the local community will have their chance to be part of this large-scale art piece.

Using free online software the Mako Create team will guide you through the creative process. Can you create Pixel Art that says something about you? For more information, click here.

Cllr Paul Nolan, Halton Borough Council’s portfolio holder for Culture and Leisure, says:

“It’s great to see over a thousand residents from Halton and beyond participating in a truly collaborative piece of innovative and ingenious art work. A great addition to the Culture HQ gallery!”

Culture HQ is open every Thursday to Saturday 10am -2pm. Or visit www.celebratehalton.co.uk/culturehq
