PHOTO OPPORTUNITY 

 

A 15-foot jacuzzi will be among the exhibits of talented Fine Art students at the Hull School of Art & Design in their final assessment degree shows next month.

 

Nick Tully and Simon Limbert, responsible for the creating the ‘leisure space in a working environment’, are hoping their work will provide relaxation in an otherwise stressful pre-degree show environment.

 

All 70 final-year Fine Art students are busy putting the finishing touches to their work before they go on show at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside’s Queens Gardens and Anlaby Road sites.

 

The Lord Mayor of Hull, Coun Fred Beedle, will be attending the opening ceremony on 8th June at 6pm.

 

“The Hull School of Art & Design has become well-known for producing consistently interesting and challenging work in all forms of art,” said final-year Fine Art student Gisele Bone.

 

The shows will be open to the public from 8th June to 15th June every day from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free of charge and there is no need to make a reservation. Maps are available at the Queens Gardens reception.

 

Look out for news of other degree shows in the Hull School of Art & Design during June. These will include Graphic Design, Illustration, Animation, TV & Film Design and Interactive Multimedia.
