The Broadway Plaza project is a large scale redevelopment of mixed use close to Birmingham city centre. To commemorate the sites former use as Birmingham Children’s Hospital the City Council invited tenders from visual artists to create a memorial presence within the new complex.
Julie Myers’s proposal to produce 3 large scale animated lenticular lightboxes containing drawings made by local school children was completed and installed in June 03.
The lightboxes create a cascade of animated movement along the main escalators.
The drawings were made by children from Nelson Mandella Primary School and St Georges Primary School in Birmingham.

The lenticulars were fabricated by Graham Tunnadine at 3D/4D Holographics.
