Jubilee Windows Project
jubilee windows Project
A large art installation has been created using Mountbatten House, which looms over the Pentagon in Chatham, as part of Medway’s celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 250 windows have been tactically coloured purple or blacked out so that when lit up at night the building will display the Queen’s royal cypher, EiiR, and the number 70. The installation will be lit up each night 1st - 9th June. #JubileeWindows
The aim of the installation is simply to add to the many Medway celebrations marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Mountbatten House, whose very name links strongly with the royal family, provides the ideal structure for honouring Her Majesty in such a simple but very large-scale way - perhaps one of the largest in the country. We have been delighted at the way the various organisations and volunteers have come together to make it happen. Supported by Medway Development Company (Medway Council) and Medway Norse. Special thanks to our Window Team: Robert Baker, Roger Barrett, Belinda Beckhelling, Gina Castle, Anna Giannarou, Steve Goldsbrough, Colin Haggart, Heather Harvey, Mat Ninnes, Julie Millest, Kate Ogden, Mayowa Oyinloye, Martin Potter, Anita Webb, Cliff Webb, Hannah Whittaker, Andy Willis and Peter Young. (With extra ladders supplied by Lee and Deniece Brooks.) Particular thanks go to Brad Webb of MDC for assisting with access to Mountbatten House and Andy Mann of Medway Norse for the lighting.
