Conjugal among the crows 🥂

Congratulations to Jodie and Chris on getting married last week at Pitzhanger! Walpole Park is a stunning setting at any time but we do think the LED crows are adding some edge!

Part of the Julian Opie exhibition in Pitzhanger's gallery, these crows - as well as the walking figure at the front of the Manor - are the first artworks we've ever had outdoors, made possible by @artfund.

Have you been to see Julian Opie at Pitzhanger?
Open until 24 October
