Liverpool Discovers

I loved the scattering of Superlambananas that were dotted round the city in the summer of 2008 when I moved back to Liverpool. However, I was a little concerned when the follow-up was an almost identical idea with penguins rather than superlambananas and then when Chester did the same with rhinos - it looked like they might flog the idea to death...

However, this year they've tweaked the format and rediscovered the winning formula. Liverpool Discovers sees a collection of different artworks distributed around the city (and with Wirral and St. Helens) on a variety of themes related to the city. So as well as the art there's a story or bit of local trivia to add to the experience.

I've not seen many of the artworks yet, but have come across one or two on my travels. "Fish and Ships" was the first I encountered, when out for a bike ride last week...

And my favourite so far, "Sugar & Chain", which is even better when viewed at night...
