The finished designs were revealed at Mayfield depot earlier this week, where director of Wild in Art (who have organised this event), Sally-All Wilkinson said "What's great about this project is it really reflects the uniqueness of Manchester in a lot of its designs and sense of purpose.. I hope people stop and have a picnic in Cathedral Gardens, or stop for some pasta and a glass of wine in Spinningfields. That's what this is about; bringing people together to rediscover their city."
