PENNY LANE PUBLIC ART PROJECT

The Sound Agents are working in consultation  with Mr Maatook the owner of the Shelter in the middle of the Roundabout in Penny Lane Liverpool, to re-imagine Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Album Cover as an art installation on his building. 

"Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer. Meanwhile back
Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And though she feels as if she's in a play,
She is anyway" 

The Beatles 1967 


The local community will be invited to take part in the project which will also depict Liverpool Musicians, Artists and Writers.

"I am so pleased to be working with The Sound Agents on this project" Mr  Maatook
