What’s On

Year of Culture Art Project Exhibition

Saturday 13th to Wednesday 24th April

Come along to the Visitor Centre at Warnham Nature Reserve to see the exhibition of designs for permanent artworks, and images and words from workshops held at the Reserve.

The poem ‘Ozymandias’ has been the inspiration for the project; our travellers from antique lands are the migrating birds and minibeasts found in the reserve. Writer in residence, Tanya Shadrick, has been busy meeting people in the reserve and working with groups of school children.

Artist Will Nash has spent time in the reserve and has designed a number of potential sculptural pieces to add to the natural collections.

Now we need your vote! Choose your favourite model and help decide which sculpture will be built for permanent exhibition at the reserve.

The exhibition is free to view, but why not follow it up with a walk round the reserve.
