A giant red ball art installation is coming to Liverpool


A giant red ball is set to appear on the streets of Liverpool this month.

The installation by American artist Kurt Perschke is described as “the world’s longest-running street art work” and has previously popped up in more than 25 cities across the globe, from Tokyo to Memphis to Montreal.

It will visit Liverpool from July 15-24 and will be found in different locations every day.

Perschke, who is based in New York, said: “Art is about people, and I look forward to seeing how Liverpool responds to the invitation RedBall offers.

“The project is not about a ball; it’s about what the combination of the site, the piece, and everyone’s energy creates together in that day.”

The 15ft diameter RedBall will materialise at the Royal Albert Dock next Friday, July 15 and will then move around the city to sites including St George’s Hall, Chinatown, Everton Brow, Toxteth and the Baltic Triangle, culminating in it making Liverpool ONE its home on July 24.

And a number of engagement projects linked to the RedBall performance will also take place in and around Everton Park and Toxteth.

The inflatable artwork, which is created from tough-wearing red PVC fabric, is being brought to the city thanks to a partnership between Culture Liverpool, Arts Council England and Global Streets.

The RedBall Project comes to Liverpool from July 15-24. More information on where you can see it HERE
