Art - ‘The Chandelier of Lost Earrings’

18th January until 15th February - Grimsby, DN31 2BH

Our Big Picture Ltd working in partnership with Grimsby Minster presents the third ‘Art in the Minster’ exhibition. ‘The Chandelier of Lost Earrings’ by the artists Sharon Campbell and Lauren Sagar will be exhibited. Open Tuesday to Saturday 9.30am-2.30pm. The chandelier stands 2.5m tall, a sculpture made from over 3,000 single earrings donated by owners who have lost the other half of the pair. The women who contributed items to the project also shared, via letters, the story attached to it, revealing why the earrings were so meaningful to them and these stories have become part of the artwork’s legacy. The chandelier was initially created to be sited at St Mary’s Hospital Manchester. www.grimsbyminster.com
