North Wales gets art of ‘Epic’ proportions installed

Static caravans for sale, North Wales won’t be the only attraction to the region this summer, after a huge art installation, measuring in at in excess of 13ft tall and 36ft wide, has been unveiled recently in Pen y Gwryd, North West Wales in conjunction with the start of the summer holidays. The work of art was commissioned through Visit Wales to coincide with the Year of Adventure campaign it has been running (which we’re sure you’ve heard about) and is set to find itself in a variety of locations up and down Wales during summer and early autumn for all to see. The works took 21 days to build with four people working on the piece. To give you an idea of how weighty the artwork is, each letter comes in at 350kg, or roughly two tonnes! There’s also a team of as many as ten people on hand to help install it in when it’s taken to each new location. Ken Skates, Welsh Government Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, said: “This is an incredible time for tourism in Wales. We are seeing record numbers of people coming here and staying here and it’s all because of our increasing profile on a world stage. “The buzz from the Euros is fantastic and I’m confident that with the development of new innovative attractions, the quality of the tourism offers and more of these kind of epic adventures, we will see a further increase in tourism in Wales.” Watch the video on and find out more about this new art, here:  Image and video courtesy of VisitWales/YouTube.
