Due to popular demand the Open Bridges exhibition at Scale Lane Bridge is extended to Saturdays during February (3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th) 11.00 am to 3.00 pm. Free entry. All welcome, come and have a look round.
The exhibition covers all elements of Open Bridges and art photography exhibition of Open Bridges images inspired by Horst P Horst Patterns From Nature – ‘Engines and Insects’.
Open Bridges made history when for the first time all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on 22nd September 2017 during Hull City of Culture’s Freedom Season.
The idea of Rich & Lou Duffy-Howard, Open Bridges was a logistical first and was the culmination of 18 months of meticulous planning and preparation. Delivered by an all Hull based team to manage the different elements, Open Bridges is a celebration of the lifeblood of the city, the River Hull and its 13 bridges, all movable. Historic vessels representing three centuries mustered on the River, all together for the first time, to be met on the Humber by powerful 21st century tugs.
Open Bridges is an independent Hull based project, concept and management by Rich & Lou Duffy-Howard
