Portobello Recollection art project in Ladbroke Grove

portobellorecollectionIf you visit Bay 66 Skatepark or are shopping in Ladbroke Grove, W10 in the near future make sure you check out the Portobello Recollection public art project on Portobello Rd. The idea was put together by Natasha Mason and Teresa Crawley, two art students at St Martins College in London and features hundreds of albums and 12″s from over the past 100 years to celebrate the eclectic music that has been made and played in the area that includes Calypso, Soca, House, Reggae, Pop, Punk, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Break beat, and Dub.

Enjoy walking past this project slowly and checking out records you may well have in your collection and others you may have always wanted, you can find this opposite the Spanish school on the North end of Portobello Rd.

One thought on “Portobello Recollection art project in Ladbroke Grove”

  1. great music was made here because there was a beautiful old wall, not a load of rubbish like this,self conscious meaningless,uncool , misunderstanding the solidarity creatives have with all classes .You kids seeking recognition for recognising something we real local people already know is pathetic. Can we have our wall back please, old Notting hill that meant something is being completely destroyed by these pathetic attempts to profit from it. Do something REAL (don’t know what that means do you).
