Big Head Art Project coming to Rockingham libraries

TWO City of Rockingham libraries will come to life with art in November, as pieces from the Big Head Art Project go on exhibition at Rockingham Central Library and Mary Davies Library and Community Centre.

The Big Head Art Project was inspired by the artistic efforts of 16 children who took part in the Art Explosion October school holiday program at Rockingham Arts Centre.

Facilitated by artists Jacq Chorlton and Carol Clitheroe, the program involved children aged eight to 12 uing paper mache to create large, wearable and colourful heads.

Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged the community to visit the libraries to see the big heads up close.

“Visitors to both the Rockingham Central Library and the Mary Davies Library and Community Centre will be greeted by the artwork as they search the shelves for their favourite books,” Cr Sammels said.

The big heads will be on display at the Mary Davies Library and Community Centre from November 5 to 16 while the Rockingham Central Library exhibition will run from November 19 to 30.
