The Art Of Remembrance
One hundred and fifty artists of all ages joined in a mass painting of 53 trees in Sheffield that mark the memory of WW1 soldiers.
Every one of the trees along Western Road, originally planted as memorials to fallen soldiers, sailors and airmen and other members of the armed services, was captured by the crowd - each in their own style.
Following a silent procession and wreath laying ceremony to mark the 11th hour of the Armistice , school children and councillors spoke alongside poets and artists led by Sheffield's Mayor.
Family of the soldiers, neighbours and local dignitaries attended.
Artist Dan Llywelyn Hall captured the road's somber but upbeat atmosphere of celebrating the living trees planted in 1919 by the pupils of the now Westways School.
A selection of the work made will be exhibited from 24th November until 3rd December at Yellow Arch Studios, Sheffield.
