Ty Pawb

We went to Wrexham to see Ty Pawb, the multi-story car park which has been converted into an art centre, now shortlisted to be Museum of the Year. By bad luck, it was between exhibitions, but we were shown the fine space, with two exhibitions currently being mounted – one on the Wrexham Quilt, being lent by the National Museum of Wales, with accompanying work inspired by it, including work by Mark Hearld and Alexander McQueen, and another a travelling exhibition of blankets. If the prize is awarded on the basis of energy and enterprise and community activism, then Ty Pawb definitely deserves to win:-

    Wrexham appears to be undergoing something of a renaissance – witness its recent elevation to city status as part of the platinum jubilee celebrations. It has also gained attention as a result of its football team being bought by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. My daughter’s best friend at university (at the same college and also a music student) is from Wrexham where her parents run a very popular burger bar on an industrial estate. She is very excited about the developments.
