The campaign to save Kensal Rise Library continues in earnest in 2012, as legendary artist Jamie Reid joins the campaign. Responsible for the ‘God Save the Queen’ and other iconic Sex Pistols images, Reid has designed and donated 200 signed limited edition prints to the ‘Save Kensal Rise Library’ campaign.
The prints will be sold for £30 apiece at the Masons Arms, 665 Harrow Road, London, NW10 from 8pm on Feb 3rd. This event will also mark National Libraries Day, which falls on February 4.
The prints will simultaneously be on sale at the Paul Stolper Gallery in Museum St, London, www.paulstolper.com and on display this week at ‘Moods of Norway’ in Los Angeles, where it will be used to highlight the belief that education ought to be universal internationally and the plight of a London library will resonate there as much as anywhere else in the world!
There will also be performers, including One Man And His Beard playing the libraries’ anthem, ‘We Need Libraries’ and local resident and Guardian columnist Tim Dowling performing banjo with Police Dog Hogan.
Tickets are £5 each and include pub grub and are available from Queens Park Books, Salusbury Rd, NW6, L’Angolos Deli, College Rd NW10 and Minkies Deli, Chamberlayne Rd, NW10. The evening will run from 8pm to 1am.
