A Moth for Amy is a mass engagement public art project, modeled on Hull’s highly successful ‘Larkin with Toads’ scheme. Amy Johnson flew a De Havilland Gipsy Moth to Australia as well as several other de Havilland Moths during her flying career.

The master sculpture of the moth has been created by East Riding Sculptor Saffron Waghorn and the Amy Johnson Festival team invited artists and designers to submit their designs.

The breathtaking outcome is a public display of 59 unique artworks, each one reflecting the powerful inspiration of Amy Johnson and her amazing achievements. From 1 July 2016 the Moths remain where they have settled until 31 March 2017, seeing in Hull’s year as UK City of Culture.
