You may have noticed something illuminating in Keighley today. A quote has appeared on the front of Keighley Library that is taken from a document from the original Mechanics Institute that was on North Street.
The idea of the Mechanics Institute was to educate Keighley folk, to let their brilliant talents shine forth, and bring positive change to town by increasing opportunities. An amazing and inspiring message.
The artwork has been designed by local artist Letty McHugh as part of the BDisLiT festival and Keighley’s winter celebrations.
The library was chosen as the location for this non-permanent art installation as it is a place for learning and because of its links to the Mechanics Institute.
We think it’s brill!
Thank you to local Dan Jerwood for the photo.
