The long awaited, and at times controversial art installation of a giant neon sign brandishing the phrase: “EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT” has finally been placed on the front on Harris Museum and Art Gallery, facing the flag market.

The sign was originally displayed in Hackney, London.

The sign was originally supposed to be erected on 27 January, one week from now, however work seems to have been faster than expected – perhaps to align with today’s Presidential Inauguration of Donald J Trump in America.
