Who are these passengers on this unusual looking plane? Where is it going? And where did it come from? ‘Flight of Fancy’ is a collaborative artwork made by students from St George’s School, with help from staff and artists Ian Whitmore and Hannah George. The students were inspired by a number of artworks in the Generation ART: Young Artists on Tour exhibition, shown in the West Gallery, and have come up with their own playful and unique response.
