Sanctuary of Colour

Lenny & Whale will be bringing their latest artwork ‘Sanctuary of Colour’ to Barnsley’s six Principal Towns during the Summer of 2024.

The artwork is made from repurposed and up-cycled hand painted furniture. It is a bright, bold and joyful intervention that will encourage a smile or at least the raise of an eyebrow.

The artwork will be touring to town and country parks, train stations, markets and other community locations and venues from mid-July through to early September 2024.

Alongside the installations, Lenny and Whale alongside musician Nicholas Lewis will be leading music and art activities that will be inspired by the artwork.

“We are really excited about 'Sanctuary of Colour’ popping-up in each of the Principal Towns. It’s been a lot of fun hunting out locations for the artwork and we look forward meeting local people and hearing their reactions to the artwork.  Alongside the installations, we will be sharing art and music activities for people to get involved in.”
