Student artwork on display at Wellington Place

07 June 2017

A brand new art installation created by four students from Leeds College of Art has been unveiled at Wellington Place in Leeds; a new development offering office and retail space in the business district.

Students from across the College were invited to submit their best creative entries to be in with a chance of having their art showcased in the reception of 5 Wellington Place. An exciting collection of entries were received, all inspired by Leeds, Yorkshire and the surrounding area.

The winning entries were submitted by Maisie Campion, BA (Hons) Fine Art, Mel Dewey, MA Creative Practice, Charlotte Curnick, BA (Hons) Illustration and Janice Leung, BA (Hons) Illustration.

The winners were selected by a judging panel made up of James Dipple, MEPC chief executive, Slav Sedan, managing consultant at Willis Towers Watson and Harmajinder Hayre, executive partner at Ward Hadaway.

James Dipple, CEO of MEPC commented:

“I was very impressed by the quality and originality of the submissions. This is an exciting opportunity for us to support and nurture local talent by giving them a space to be inspired by, whilst also offering a professional commission and real life experience as the students worked to a brief, strict time scale and presented to a full panel of judges.

Wellington Place, in Leeds is establishing itself as an outstanding new urban quarter at the business location of choice for leading organisations, so it’s great to be able to offer our customers a unique and inspiring environment in the form of the outstanding quality of work produced by Leeds College of Art students.”

The new installation is the first of four sets of artwork from Leeds College of Art students that will be displayed on a quarterly basis throughout the year.
