Way back in 1984 the first UK International Garden Festival was held in Liverpool. The aim was to revitalise tourism and the city of Liverpool which had been in decline, and the idea came from Conservative Environment Minister Michael Heseltine. The festival was hugely popular, attracting over 3 million visitors in the six month that it was open.
Amongst the exhibits were several artworks of which the work by the Sculptor John Clinch entitled "Wish You Were Here" was one. After the festival the artwork disappeared into storage and has finally reapeared at the window of the new Museum of LIverpool 25 years later.
