The Artizan Art Gallery and Community Hub

6274 were commissioned by Jones Lang LaSalle to create an Art Gallery and Community Hub for the Artizan Centre in Dumbarton. The aim being to engage with the community, and increase foot fall in the area.

Part of the remit, included producing artwork to be displayed on a number of vacant shop units.

This included;

• Design & print of marketing material for The Artizan Art Gallery and Community Hub
• Extensive community involvement
• Video loop for window of community hub
• Memory Tree / Dumbarton Timeline Project
• Community Arts and Events Programme at the Community Hub
• Panoramic photography of the local area
• Local schools artwork

6274 developed and managed the whole project from conception to completion.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank 6274 again for this weekend.
I am extremely pleased with how successful the launch was and I am looking forwards to the future of what the Community Hub will bring to the Centre and our retailers.
Having gathered retailer feedback today they have all seen a direct impact, so all in all I can say I can sleep tonight for the first time in a while!

Dumbarton Lomography Underpass Project

6274 Public Art were commissioned by West Dunbartonshire Council to carry out a community photography project to create fantastic final graphics for the the Strathleven Underpass Development.

Rather than simply using standard digital cameras to take photos of people and places within the local area we used a selection of Lomography Cameras to create a vibrant and creative effect. None of the kids involved had ever used anything other than a digital camera or their mobile phone to take photos, so having only 10 to 24 attempts to take the perfect photo was a challenge.

We worked with the Kids of the Tulluchan Trust to firstly teach them about photography and how to use the cameras and then spent a day taking photographs all across the vale of Leven.

The remit given from the council was to create an atmosphere of fun for the final underpass graphics that were produced.

Once the films were developed the fantastic images were reworked  into large format graphics to be approved by the councils planning department.

The final images of the Strathleven Underpass are shown below.

Many thanks to everyone involved.
