The 'Cat Walk' mosaic abovewas unveiled on the bridge opposite Willesden Green station yesterday. It is the first of a series of cat-motif mosaics inspired by the illustrations of Louis Wain, an early 20th century Brent artist.
Community involvement is encouraged through attending participatory workshops to complete the mosaics. Residents are encouraged to say where they would like to see future mosaics installed in the area.
The Willesden Green Town Team are working on a number of projects in Willesden Green and Dudden Hill to 'develop a thriving, vibrant and economically sustainable and uplifting environment for us to live and work in'.
I am tempted to annouce a similar project but with a rat-motif and a rather different 'vision' to be installed around Brent Civic Centre but will resist. Miaow.
