Money raised for the Birmingham Big Art Project

The Car Hire Birmingham Airport branch are delighted the charity has had a successful fundraising event.

The Birmingham Big Art Project has received £3,300 after the money was raised at a charity fundraising walk to coincide with the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. The Chung Ying Walk took place from Colmore Row to ChinaTown and explored the history of the Chinese culture and the Chinese community in Birmingham.

The event which also featured a performance by Elements of Song at Chung Ying Garden raised £3,374.20 for the Birmingham Big Art Project. The aim of the project is to commission and install an iconic piece of public art for Birmingham city centre which will put the city on the world’s cultural map.

Chairman Glyn Pitchford said “It’s great that the Chinese community has spearheaded this particular fundraising event. The project wants to create an iconic piece of art which will benefit all the communities of Birmingham. So we all need to get involved and take ownership of it, if we want a lasted legacy for the city.”

The aspiration is for the artwork, which is anticipated to cost around £2 million, to have maximum visual impact and be recognisable around the world to attract tourists. The new website and logo for The Birmingham Big Art Project is also to be launched this month.
