30 May – 11 June
Chiswick’s schools have come together to create a royal High Road of outsize postage stamps showing the Queen’s iconic profile in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Retailers along the High Road, including shops, restaurants, flower stalls and other businesses are lending their windows to this Jubilee celebration. Installation 30th May 2022.
A major art competition was launched last month in all local schools, primary and secondary, by Tanya Saunders of Chiswick art club Make + Paint, in partnership with Abundance London, and London Borough of Hounslow’s Summer of Culture. Schoolchildren have been painting, drawing, sticking and collaging to create the most glorious and innovative representations of what the Queen means to them, using the monarch’s stamp head as a basic template. Winners were selected from each school.
These fantastic images will be displayed as large artworks in the shop windows along the High Road in the celebration fortnight from 30 May to 11 June, creating a colourful royal processional of Queen’s Head Stamps.
