Good ideas - artworks from old letterheads..

What do schools do with old letterheads, compliments slips and so on when they 'rebrand' themselves. No matter how carefully you try and use up old stock - there is always some left, I know I've done it myself.

I really like the idea employed by The Avenue School in Reading, who with the help of Artist in Residence; Veronica Armstrong, did some great sculptures using both the old and new letterheads under the title 'Out with the Old, In with the New'. These are both displayed at the entrance of the school and form a great focal point for visitors and students alike.

The whole importance of artwork, and the displaying of work, by students, staff and professionals in proper gallery or exhibition spaces is really so important in providing a stimulating, creative and hopefully everchanging learning environment.

But basically, I just really liked this idea, I've not seen it before and thought I would share it for a creative start to 2009!

Happy New Year everyone!
