Here comes the sun: Orkney’s St Magnus Cathedral to welcome art exhibition as part of 2023 science festival

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

Orkney’s St Magnus Cathedral will play host to an artwork portraying the sun in the form of a 6m-diameter inflatable balloon.

The famous cathedral has won backing from the local authority’s St Magnus Cathedral sub-committee.

This week, the sub-committee members viewed a report recommending the artwork be welcomed as part of next year’s Orkney International Science Festival, between September 7 and 13.

The SUN was produced by artist Alex Rinsler and solar physicist Professor Robert Walsh, along with Dr Jonathan Westaway of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
