CRAZY ART GOLF WILL REOPEN ON SATURDAY 5th AND SUNDAY 6th MAY, 12-5pm
Don’t miss the world’s first Crazy Art Golf course, specially created by Alan Smyth – legendary music producer, musician, inventor and artist.
Alan’s artwork aims to get audiences involved and interacting. Using the well-loved and familiar format of the mini golf game, Crazy Art Golf will entice participants into a world that plays with their senses. The installation will work on many levels, from that of a highly enjoyable game of crazy golf (like no other) to an exploration of shape, form and sound.
Designs include ‘Henry Moore Bar Tat’, which will feature a mother and family sculpture of formless heads that shout ‘Oi!’ when the ball touches them.
Crazy Art Golf will be the best fun you will ever have with a putter in your hand!
There is still time to donate to Crazy Art Golf – materials are needed – check out the donations button on our homepage.
