Artist Rodriguez-Gerada to give Belfast a new face


HE has created works of art all over the world - now internationally acclaimed Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada has been signed up as artist in residence at the Belfast Festival at Queen's.

As part of this, Rodriguez-Gerada will work with volunteers from throughout Belfast to create a giant land-art portrait on five acres in the Titanic Quarter.

Entitled Wish, Rodriguez-Gerada's portrait of a child gazing towards the future "will represent a new face for Belfast on the old face of the city and will capture the purity of a child making a wish".

Wish will be revealed on October 17. For more visit call 02890 971197. Or follow Facebook and Twitter #BelFest.
