Hush - Meet the Artist

Bowlees Visitor Centre, Barnard Castle, DL12 0XE
Sat 20th July 2019
Hush is a monumental artwork augmenting the landscape of Upper Teesdale this summer. See the main Hush webpage at for more details.

Meet the Artist is a one-off chance to find out about the inspiration and the effort that has gone into producing this dramatic installation direct from its creator, Steve Messam. Steve is a renowned environmental artist who produces large-scale temporary works in landscapes around the world. His work is designed to be unique to a location and inspired by and set within the landscape, and Hush is no exception.

The talk starts at 2pm at Bowlees Visitor Centre, then travel to the artwork by minibus or on foot and explore it at your own leisure. Please note the area is exposed and on uneven ground, so dress appropriately.

The price for this event is £3.00 per person and booking is essential.

This event and Hush are made possible through the support of Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
