Wendover Community Library Art Commission

Libraries Team, 15 December 2022 - Wendover Community Library Project

We’re very excited to have commissioned the artist Kremena Dimitrova to create a unique art installation for the transformed library. Kremena Dimitrova is a London based illustrator-as-historian, storyteller and lecturer in visual culture and history. She specialises in children's illustration, comics, murals, public art installations, mapmaking/trails, and visual storytelling in the museum and heritage sectors.

Commission Aim

  • To create an installation that complements the architecture of the library building
  • Develop a concept that is informed by an aspect of Wendover’s identity or heritage
  • Include an element of local community, staff or volunteer engagement
  • Work with a colour scheme that is complementary to the dementia friendly palette chosen for the library.

The artwork has been designed by Kremena working with local residents and schools in a number of workshops. The ‘edutainment’ art concepts will celebrate Wendover’s times past and present.

The children’s library will have:

  • Wendover illustrated alphabet with histories in rhymes and riddles.
  • Interactive conceptual tree with a mini exhibition and answers to the rhymes and riddles.
  • Wendover legends.

The main entrance will have:

  • Illustrated map of Wendover with historical and contemporary people, places, spaces, architectures, facts, myths and legends.
  • Illustration of Wendover woodlands

Time Line

Community Engagement Workshops: December 2022 to June 2023

Artwork will be installed: Early 2024
