Project Object Product Launch Invitation:
Tuesday 28th August, 5.30-6.30pm at the Grundy Art Gallery, Queen Street, Blackpool, FY1 1PU

Project Object is pleased to invite you to our exclusive product launch!
We are offering all invitees a 10% discount on all Project Object purchases during the evening.

There will be an opportunity to chat to the artists involved and view some of the prototypes and work which came out of the community workshops.
Blackpool has a wealth of historic collections and heritage buildings which have inspired commissioned artists/designers Tim Denton, Lois Blackburn and Bonker*s Clutterbucks to produce a range of contemporary and innovative items to be sold in the Grundy Art Gallery Shop and the Tourist Information Centre Shop. These artists/designers also led four weekly design sessions with the community, taking them on a design journey from researching the collections to developing a product for sale.

Please RSVP to Catherine at Grundy Art Gallery on grundyartgallery@blackpool.gov.uk or 01253 478170.
Project Object is managed by Blackpool Arts Service and supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
