Scenes of Middlesbrough, Cleveland, North East England
Middlesbrough Town Hall, and a big concert venue for pop groups or orchestras etc. and one of the finest buildings in Middlesbrough.
In the square is a statue of John Vaughan (1799-1868) who was Mayor of Middlesbrough in 1855. He discovered ironstone in the Middlesbrough, Cleveland Hills and was one of the founding fathers of the iron industry on Teesside (more on page 13).
Looking across the fountains in front of the Town Hall towards the MIMA art gallery.
Also across the square from the Town hall is MIMA, The Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art and the prominent 'Bottle of Notes' sculpture. A splendid new property in Middlesbrough, lets hope for more exciting building projects. The 'bottle' sculpture pays tribute to Middlesbrough's most famous son, Captain James Cook and the technical and engineering heritage of Teesside. The sculpture is the work of Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. It consists of writing in steel and the outer white shell is made up of extracts from Captain Cook's journals.
The Law Courts and bottle sculpture can be seen through the front of the MIMA building which is architecturally interesting and striking in its simplicity ...
MIMA, also known as the Middlesbrough Institute of
Modern Art, was initially opened in 2007 as part of the regeneration of
Middlesbrough town centre. Since its establishment, the art gallery has
presented a diverse range of exhibitions from internationally renowned
contemporary artists and emerging talents alike.
... and the galleries of exhibits at MIMA are well worth a visit (photography not allowed) and the building itself is a welcome addition to the town centre skyline. It was good to see a class of schoolchildren engaged in artistic activities in the education-workshop floor.
Part of Captain Cook Square, one of the more recent shopping centre developments.
