Minimum Monument by Néle Azevedo
Birmingham Hippodrome is delighted to present Minimum Monument, a major exhibition by the award winning Brazilian artist Néle Azevedo.
Minimum Monument is a poignant and moving display featuring 5,000 figures made out of ice. Members of the public will be invited to place the beautifully crafted sculptures on the steps of the city’s Chamberlain Square where they can watch as the sea of ice figures melt.
The WAWI Project and Perry Barr Housing Liaison Board invite you to join us in marking the Centenary of World War One. On Thursday 10th July from 1pm – 3pm we host a community Commemoration at the Kingsdown Avenue Recreational Area in Great Barr.
