To celebrate the upcoming ‘Back to the Future’ date, the animation team at CPL Online are hosting a contemporary art and mixed media exhibition entitled ‘Hey McFly!’ after the famous film quotation.

The exhibition will take place at Constellations Liverpool on Wednesday 21 October 2015 and will showcase artwork from many talented artists including members of CPL Animate - Vicky Barker, Kirsten Shiel, Leyla Gurr, Bid Foot Studio and Gareth Barker.

Also exhibiting for this event is the Hill Valley Preservation Society, who will be showcasing their range of ‘Back to the Future’ props and costumes.

The event will also be raising money for Parkinson’s UK, the UK’s support and research charity, with a silent auction of all artwork exhibited.

“’Back to the Future’ is such an iconic film and its theme absolutely optimises what we do at CPL Animate, which is innovate”, said Nikki Anderson, Head of CPL Animate.

“The team all love the film and we decided we couldn’t let the infamous ‘Future Day’ pass without celebrating today. We are really proud of the mixed media artwork that will be showcased at the ‘McFly!’ exhibition and look forward to welcoming fellow ‘Back to the Future’ fans and those that are inspired by creative change, like us, to visit.”

“Whilst the event is about bringing together groups of people who share a passion for creative arts and ‘Back to the Future’, we also wanted to support a worthwhile cause. In honour of the film’s star, Michael J. Fox, who has publicly battled with Parkinson’s disease, we have chosen to support Parkinson’s UK”, continued Nikki.

“We are delighted that the CPL Animate team have chosen to support our charity with such an interesting event. Their passion is infectious and it is great to see so many artists getting involved and donating pieces” added Sarah Green, Regional Fundraiser North West, Parkinson’s UK.

The event, sponsored by CPL Online, will be free to enter. Those wishing to attend must register in advance to receive their free ticket.
