A creative community

The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017 and is marking this golden milestone with an exhibition of works of art inspired by the 10 Ironbridge museums, all created by members of the local community. The exhibition is made up of more than 70 works in a variety of mediums including painting, print-making, photography, ceramics, glass, needlecraft and sculpture. Entries were judged in three categories: under 12s, 12-17 year olds, and 18 and over, plus education categories for primary and secondary schools. The winners in each category received a cash prize, with the schools – Hollinswood Primary and Ludlow Education Centre – receiving the funds on behalf of their winning pupils. The Art of the Community exhibition is open Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm in the Coalbrookdale Gallery, adjacent to Enginuity, until 2 January 2018 and entry is free.
