Crown’s Over The Rainbow
Glastonbury Festival-goers may have noticed a colourful new fixture in The Park field this year, in the form of a large sitting rainbow sculpture.
Crown Paints donated more than 50 litres of its Crown Trade Matt Vinyl and Sadolin Outdoor Varnish Satin paints in each colour of the rainbow to complete the sculpture, which took just under 3 weeks to complete by UK contemporary artist Paul Insect and a team of engineers and carpenters.
Organised for Glastonbury Festival by art curators Creative Giants and designed by Paul Insect, the rainbow stands at over six metres tall and provided a fun new fixture for the weekend, which complemented the famous Glastonbury sign.
Simon Vaughan, director at Creative Giants said: “It was awesome to partner with Crown Paints and you can see from all the photos across Twitter that the rainbow ‘deckchair’ really was one of the highlights of the weekend. We couldn’t have done it without this amazing support for our creative community.”
