8 year old Fraser Unwin Of Buxton Junior school is the winner of The Trail of Smiles - an Art Installation created by Artist Lindsey Piper in collaboration with Buxton Town Team and launched during this year’s Buxton Fringe.
The Trail of Smiles was created for the people of Buxton to discover 25 Smiles throughout their town in venues that included houses, places of interest and businesses. When Artist Lindsey Piper was asked why she had put this installation together she said ‘I was very aware on my daily walks during lockdown that other people like myself were discovering parts of their own town they may never have seen and wanted to mirror that experience of discovery with a reward of a cheeky smile. To make it more fun I decided to make it a competition.’
Fraser was thrilled to be the winner of the Trail of Smiles and when his Mum, Katy told him she said he had the biggest smile on his face.
Lindsey is looking forward to Buxton Fringe 2021 to create another installation for the people of Buxton and visitors to the town, and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
