Raffle: Win a Bob and Roberta Smith Print
As part of Multiplied 2013, Vital Arts is raffling Bird Search by Bob and Roberta Smith. The print was produced in 2009 as part of The Department of Ogolothinry, Bob and Roberta’s public art commission for Vital Arts for The Royal London Health and Wellness Centre. Devised as a joyful word search puzzle for visitors to disentangle, The Department of Ogolothinry features over forty painted signs with the jumbled names of birds, a playful work inspired by the artist’s love of the country and nature. Bird Search provides the key to his bird spotting conundrum.
Raffle tickets cost £10 each and can be purchased online or at the Vital Arts stand during the fair. All proceeds raised will go towards funding the patient participation programme for Barts Health NHS Trust.
The Raffle will be drawn on Monday 21 October 2013 at 5pm.
