Washington Old Hall, National Trust, commissioned Lindsey Mendick and Dominic Watson in Spring 2019 as part of the Meeting Point programme.

Lindsey and Dominic have been working with the hall and collaborating with local community groups to produce an artwork responding to Washington Old Hall’s history and collection. Their artwork has been delayed by Covid-19, and will launch in Spring 2021.

Lindsey Mendick and Dominic Watson said:

We’re absolutely ecstatic to be working with Washington Old Hall. To have the opportunity to work with such a historically rich National Trust building and all the wonderful people connected to the site is a really unique opportunity!”
