Artist Submissions Revealed at our Sponsorship Selection Event
Last month, our amazing sponsors had the exclusive ‘first-look’ at the designs which may make it into Morph’s Epic Art Adventure Trail in London next summer.
Over 45 people attended to witness the big reveal and have the chance to select their top three designs.
Before we revealed the artworks, Andrew Prestney, Partner at EY, our Official Events Partner said:
“At EY, we’re striving to create a workplace where everyone feels they belong and differences are valued. I’m proud we’re building on our long-standing relationship with Whizz-Kidz and sponsoring ‘Morph’s Epic Art Adventures’, which promotes accessibility and inclusion, two key priorities for us. I have fond childhood memories of Morph and am looking forward to seeing the unique sculptures around London next summer, which I’m sure will create much-needed conversation, particularly around the restrictions young wheelchair users face every day.”
Jason-Wilsher Mills, who recently worked with Whizz-Kidz young people on a collaborative design for the trail said via video:
“It’s about working with children and young people, first of all. They’re going to work with me and see a disabled person who’s a successful artist – whatever that means! – which is really positive. My Job is to kind of tease out stories, which I can include on the sculpture design, that are kind of honest, authentic, and real. That is my job really as the artist, to bring those stories out and share them with the very lucky, lucky people in London.”
Peter Lord, Co-Founder of Aardman and Co-Creator of Morph wished the sponsors good luck with their selection process before via video:
“I’m so sorry I can’t be with you tonight, but me and Morph are with you in spirit! We’re thrilled to be working with Whizz-Kidz, to bring Morph’s Epic Art Adventure to London, and I’d like to thank all of you for your support to make this amazing and inspiring event happen. You are extremely lucky to be getting a sneak preview of the designs tonight. It’s always such a thrill to see how artists interpret this unusual canvas. I’ve been working on my own design, which I’m very much looking forward to seeing at full size, along with all the other amazing Morphs on the streets of London!”
We then revealed the artists portfolio which included all the designs and a description of each submission alongside the artists’ biographies.
The event provided the partners and sponsors with the opportunity to help shape what the incredible art trail will look like when it hits the streets of London next summer.
So, what happens next?
Our partners and sponsors will now submit their top three choices, and the Morph team will review all selections and confirm design allocations in early January 2023. After the selection is complete, our talented artists will be commissioned to start bringing their vision to life on the 6-ft Morph sculptures.
Sponsorship opportunities still up for grabs!
