The night sky has been a source of inspiration and guidance ever since the beginning of time, from the Mesopotamian god Sin to the James Webb Telescope. When someone passes we say there’s another star in the sky, when looking for fertility or wisdom we look to the moon. Whether you’re navigating your journey by the north star, your love life by the zodiac or your faith by the deities in the night sky - the sense of wonder is universal. Louisa Smurthwaite & Douglas Green created this artwork to celebrate how the sky gives people a sense of time, place and direction.

Winter's Wander

Launching in late 2022, 'Winter's Wander' is the theme of our seven newly commissioned wintry additions to our free Wembley Park Art Trail. Gracing unlikely canvases such as Olympic Way, the Spanish Steps and Arena Square, 'Winter's Wander' inspires joy, togetherness and a sense of adventure. Using both local and leading artists, 'Winter's Wander' features digital pieces, lighting installations and displays, cartoon-like illustrations, and new permanent artworks including tiled murals and painted pieces.
