The Observatory Science Centre at Herstmonceux Castle is one of four venues in the running to win the chance for a contemporary artist to put on an event at its premises.
Connect10 is a national competition where museums and galleries can win an artist to put on an event during the 2014 Museums at Night festival which runs from Thursday May 15 - Saturday May 17. It is the sixth year of the nationwide festival of culture and heritage which sees museums, galleries, and historic houses open their doors after dark to the public.
The artists have shortlisted their favourite ideas and now the public have to decide which artist will go where. The Observatory Science Centre is one of the venues shortlisted by Fred Deakin. With the band Lemon Jelly, he has been Mercury Music Prize and Brit nominated and sold over half a million albums. In 1998 he co-founded London design agency Airside. Deakin’s proposal is for a day-glo game show party.
Voting closes on January 28. Vote for your favourite venue at www.museumsatnight.org.uk.
