Art exhibition at the Cathedral...

St Edmundsbury Cathedral transformed by art exhibition

 
St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, will be transformed from Wednesday 19 June by an exciting and innovative exhibition created by children across the county of Suffolk.

 

Part of an ongoing series of art exhibitions designed to encourage children to respond artistically to a spiritual theme, this year’s exhibition is based on ‘Transformation and Change’. The artworks, which take the form of totem pole structures made from cardboard boxes, will be on display to the general public and a programme of events for school children will take place from 19 to 25 June.


‘We are excited about this latest exhibition, which is part of a 5 year project,’ comments Helen Woodroffe, Children’s Education Officer at the Cathedral. ‘Each exhibition seems to bring out some wonderful creativity in children and we all benefit from seeing this displayed in such a magnificent setting as the Cathedral.’

Visitors are welcome to view the exhibition during the normal opening times of the Cathedral. Stewards will be on hand and programmes will be available. Admission is free.


The work with the children has been carried out by the Discovery Centre, St. Edmundsbury Cathedral in partnership with 20 Primary, Middle and Upper schools.
