Rainbow Park

Festival of the World at Southbank Centre
June – September 2012

Grey concrete is concealed by thousands of grains of sand dyed in different colours as Queen’s Walk is transformed into a rainbow-coloured sand park for children and adults by Polish sculptor Adam Kalinowski. People explored the textures, colours and patterns that emerge as they walked barefoot across the park. Families became sculptors for the day, building sand shapes, or simply sitting to watch other families playing together with the art.
