ARTWORK produced by students from a Pinner school will be seen by thousands of Tube passengers.
Posters featuring paintings, photographs and drawings by pupils studying for fine art GCSE and A-level or photography A-level at Nower Hill High School in George V Avenue – which counts arts and science as its specialism - have been hung at North Harrow station on the Metropolitan line.
They appear alongside commissioned works by professional artists made for Art On The Underground's 100 Roundels project to celebrate the iconic emblem of London Underground.
Student Harry Massingham, 17, said: “Hopefully putting up people’s artwork will brighten up those Monday morning commutes. I feel honoured that my art is being displayed alongside other brilliant artwork for hundreds of commuters to see.”
Howard Freed, headteacher, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity both for our students’ work to be on display and for the public to see the quality of art in our school.”
Cathy Haynes, curator for Art on the Underground, said: “We hope this exhibition by Nower Hill students will add enjoyment and interest to customers’ journeys. It has been great to give Nower Hill High School an opportunity to celebrate their students’ achievements and they have made some great artwork for our Tube station.”
