Paint a Pipe exhibition

Manchester Cathedral is in the process of installing a new organ. A "Paint a Pipe" project was launched by Manchester Cathedral Development Project in 2015 to provide educational opportunities for Greater Manchester schools to learn about the organ and discover more about Manchester Cathedral itself. Pipes from the decommissioned organ (which had C19th origins and was restored after extensive WW2 damage) were collected and pupils from 24 schools decorated pipes on the theme of "Musical Manchester". They are were displayed at Manchester Airport by their Artist in Residence, Andy Leigh. The pipes were hung from the ceiling of the Bus, Train and Metrolink interchange station, thus showcasing the artistic talents of Greater Manchester pupils to a wide audience. These panels record the event. More information at LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) and LinkExternal link
