Art at Attingham

Attingham Park was bequeathed to the National Trust (NT) in 1947 by the Berwick family as a gift for ‘public benefit’. This year, the team at Attingham will be sharing more about the work that takes place across the estate to protect nature and care for wildlife as part of the year long programme ‘Grow Your Green Roots’.

As part of the programme, Attingham will host a partnership exhibition between the NT and the National Portrait Gallery. From Saturday 22 June to Sunday 8 September, an exhibition of 30 portraits, Face of Change: Nature’s Champions, will be on display in the Picture Gallery. Environmental activists, poets, artists, politicians, campaigners, gardeners, broadcasters and scientists who have affected how we interact with our environment will be depicted in outstanding paintings, sculpture, photographs and a number of recent commissions from leading contemporary artists.
