Nottingham has a rich source of art and culture. There is so much to see and do. You only have to walk around this amazing city and you are sure to come accross something in every corner that is of interest. Interestingly Sherwood Forest which is synonimous with Nottingham… is about an hour away lol It’s probably one thing people come to Notts to see and they have to travel a good hour out of the city centre to get to it! Anyway. Aside from that there is still loads too see.
Once such object that is worth going to check out is Anish Kapoor’s Sky Mirror at the Nottingham Playhouse. Its a stunning sculpture which in 2001 when it was installed was the most exspensive piece of Lottery funded public art work just shy of £1million.
Installed just outside the entrance it’s a 6 meter wide, concave dish of polished stainless steel. Angled towards the sky it reflects it’s ever changing environment. On a sunny day it can be truly beautiful. Sadly it wasn’t such a day when i went lol but still got some cool shots.
There are other Sky Mirrors in St. Petersburg Russia, Kensington Gardens London and at Rockefeller Center in New York.
