Yvette Mattern’s Global Rainbow is a spectacular large-scale outdoor laser projection artwork consisting of the seven colours of the rainbow which will span Preston across Lancashire from 8 – 12 March as part of the Cultural Olympiad programme. The people of Preston, Lancashire and the North West will be invited to sign up to WE PLAY – a once in a life time opportunity to make your mark on London 2012.

  1. As a Proud Prestonian, living in Perth, Western Australia, this project really fascinates me. Over the last few days I’ve seen lots of great images of the Global Rainbow, and so wish I was there in person to see it. Love the idea, and it’s great to know that Preston has been included in the 2012 Guild Year 🙂

    • Hello Linda, Happy you saw the images from Preston in Australia!
      Thank you for the nice words. I hope you are able to see it in person
      one day. all best, Yvette

      • Hi Yvette, thanks for your reply, I’ve got a friend who has posted her photos on fb and I have a link to the local Newspaper which has also covered the fabulous Rainbow over Preston. I’m expecting photos from my family too, and I’ve been following the progress on Google since I first heard about it last weekend. It’s really exciting, I’m showing everyone who’ll look!!! You’ve done a wonderful thing by including Preston in your itinerary, it’s a very historical and attractive city, and this is a perfect way to show off it’s beauty by night. Thankyou……one day I will go back:)
        Kind regards, Linda.
