Scenes of Walsall

Herbert Wright, Walsall as seen from Peal Street, 1958
Oil on canvas.

 

What are the famous landmarks of Walsall? How has the landscape of Walsall changed over time? What will the landscape of Walsall look like in the future?


 

Many scenes of Walsall have been collected since the establishment of Walsall’s public art collection in 1892.  In this exhibition, to help celebrate the Permanent Collection’s 125th birthday, a range of these are on display, from a lithograph of Walsall High Street in 1845 to contemporary photography.

 

We would like local families to participate by contributing their memories and creating their own ‘Scenes of Walsall’ to be added to the display.

 

There will also be a series of workshops in The Family Gallery alongside the exhibition, 1-3pm. Free, drop-in. All welcome.
