Art Trail Spoof

An anonymous jester has created leaflets for The Colne Valley Sculpture Trail (2013) in West Yorkshire (CLICK). The fictional trail promotes "A 3 mile walk past 12 artworks located in the beautiful Pennine Colne Valley". The "artworks" include an abandoned bath in a field, a derelict house and a collapsed dry-stone wall. Each piece has been given a title, a fictitious artist and a pretentious blurb, the sort of highfalutin gobbledygook dished out by art galleries and promoted by Arts Council England. As a Mickey-take on the art lark, it's excellent. It could also promote a few healthy walks (CLICK).
