I am Hammersmith
3, Shortlands | Romulus | 2019
A new public art commission by Helen Marshall, that engaged the community of Hammersmith at Romulus 3 Shortlands, a prominent office building located on Hammersmith Road in the heart of Hammersmith’s Town Centre.
The artwork celebrates the area, all who live there today, and its rich history. The artwork will be a centrepiece in the cafe reception area and feature people and places from Hammersmith and the surrounding area.
The artwork is part of a new 7,000 sqft open plan reception/event/café area and is open to the public. The intent of this space is to create a vibrant area at the heart of the building where occupiers and residents can sit, have a coffee, relax and attend community and business events.
The final artwork features local faces and stories from the present from all walks of life.
