To celebrate a month since the Tour de Yorkshire reached its sensational conclusion, voting is now open to crown the best piece of land art from this year’s race.
Stage Three of the Tour de Yorkshire 2017 started in Bradford city centre and passed through large parts of the Bradford district on Sunday 30 April 2017.
Hundreds of amazing installations animated this year’s route and two from the Bradford district have made the shortlist and our very own Haworth Primary School is one of them with their ‘Branwell Bronte riding a bicycle’.
The artwork featuring Branwell Bronte riding a bicycle was part of a project celebrating the Tour de Yorkshire at Haworth Primary School. The artwork celebrates 200 years from the birth of painter and writer Branwell Bronte in 1817 the brother to writers Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte who lived in and wrote about Haworth.
Pupils and teachers at the school worked with Andrew Wood from Manorlands, Sue Ryder Hospice to create the giant land art in conjunction with Worth Valley Young Farmers Club. The land art is made out of recycled plant pots, carpet and tarpaulin.
The public vote is now open for people to decide their favourite land art from this year’s Tour de Yorkshire and they can do so at letouryorkshire.com/landart
Voting is open until midnight on Tuesday 13 June and the winner will be announced shortly after.
