Big Draw 2014

Nantwich Museum’s contribution to the Campaign for Drawing’s Big Draw 2014 was on the nature-based theme of ‘Our World’. People of all ages dropped by to depict plants and animals, both real and imagined. As time in the Millennium Gallery ticked by, punctuated by quiet periods of utter absorption, as well as frantic scribblings and even laughter, the frieze itself never was in any danger of extinction but grew more bountiful by the hour, and it was great to see everyone contributing.
Commissioned by the museum from Nantwich-based artist, Nicholas Ferenczy, with original music (a variation of the Floral Dance by Katie Moss) by Baseline People, this little video tells the story of the day and showcases some of the lovely fun drawings made – many by local children.
This event was also part of the Family Arts Festival 2014 (Patron: Michael Morpurgo).
