Ferry Butterfly Park is hosting an Open Day & Art Trail on Sunday 2nd
May 2010. The event will begin at 11am and last until 4pm.
Entry will be free for
everyone. Activities will include
The Butterfly Park has an
artist in residence. Carol Ramsay has been working alongside the
Butterfly Park team and will be curating a temporary sculpture trail by
local artists using recycled materials on the site of the local nature
reserve during the summer.
Carol also hopes to start
using an empty space during the summer in New Ferry. She will be based
there as an artists studio and using the space as an interim visitor
centre for the butterfly park. This would also be a place where local
people could meet to talk about their memories of New Ferry and their
hopes and aspirations for the future. Carol hopes that eventually local
people could also volunteer to work within the visitor centre as a point
of local contact and source of information for the Park.
