10AM - 5.30PM
Happy Cloud is a public artwork by acclaimed British artist Stuart Semple in which he floods the skyline with thousands of smiley faced clouds made from soap helium and vegetable dye.
Now more pertinent than ever, this ephemeral work questions our ideas of happiness. It was originally presented outside the Tate Modern at the height of the UK recession. It has also been presented in Milan, Dublin and Moscow. Stuart Semple is an Ambassador for the mental health charity, Mind.

Presented with Manchester Mind, the Whitworth, Manchester Museum and Manchester Art Gallery.
