Our Moth has landed!
Rollits has pledged its support to A Moth for Amy, a mass
engagement public art project based on the concept of the hugely
successful Larkin with Toads initiative.
Giant moth sculptures, created by local sculptor, Saffron
Waghorn, and painted by artists in a variety of designs are being
placed at locations across Hull, East Yorkshire and beyond ready
for the Amy Johnson Festival launch on Friday, 1 July
The Moth for Amy project is part of a wider cultural festival,
using Amy's legacy to create an exciting programme from July
through to September based on art, science and engineering. The
aims of the festival are to raise awareness of Amy Johnson's
achievements as an aviator, as an engineer and as a woman of her
time, to encourage young women to consider engineering and the
sciences as career choices through the presentation of positive
role models and creative projects and to help set the scene for
Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
Pat Coyle, Marketing & Client Relations Director at Rollits
said: " Amy Johnson was one of the most influential and
inspirational women of the twentieth century. She was the first
woman to fly solo from England to Australia in 1930 and set a
string of other records throughout her career.
"More than 45 businesses from across the city and the region
have backed this project and we are delighted that our Moth was the
first one to be installed this morning.
"People leaving work tonight will have their first opportunity
to see our "Moth for Amy" on Citadel House."
