Grotto Appears at the Olympic Park

The Olympic Park recently hosted Art Moves, an event celebrating the amazing world of mobile art vehicles. Kent has its very own Cultural Baton, a converted silver 50s Airstream caravan that travels the county and beyond as a public art space.


Artists Maggie Rose and Nicole Mollett asked visitors to help them in recreating the Shell Grotto inside the Baton for the event, while artists created commemorative pieces for the tiny Souvenir Shop.
