A new sculpture, Myriad by artist David Rickard and architect Germano Di Chello, has been installed on the Henry Moore Lawn at Snape Maltings and is open for visitors!
Myriad holds an array of mirrors high above visitors’ heads, bringing views over the surrounding landscape down to earth. The project, which is supported by the Coastal Communities Fund, aims to attract more families with children to the Snape Maltings site on the Suffolk coast, offering a new way of viewing the stunning landscape of the Alde estuary.
Below several of the high level mirrors are further reflector panels positioned to create a series of large periscopes, capturing a wide and ever-changing series of vistas from the spectacular surroundings and creating a dynamic multi-perspective collage that constantly shifts in relation to visitors’ movement around and within the sculpture.
In addition to the new sculpture, there are a series of new developments at Snape Maltings this year; the newly opened Concert Hall Café, replaces the Oyster Bar and Kitchen and is open until the end of concerts on concert nights, it will also be open every day through the summer until the start of October (Monday – Saturday 10am–5.30pm, Sunday 10am–4.30pm).
The Concert Hall Café will serve tea, coffee and pastries, a lunch menu with an emphasis on fresh, healthy salads and a brunch menu at weekends.
Based in the outer foyer of Snape Maltings Concert Hall, you will spot a new Visitor Centre, opened in May, this year, the centre has information on all aspects of the site, from what’s on and where to eat to walks and wildlife and public transport timetables.
Be sure to stop by the famous Maltings on your next trip to The Suffolk Coast!
