The Big Draw 2019: Drawn to Life Exhibition at West Bridgford Library

West Bridgford Library, Nottingham

Date -
Time All day
Venue West Bridgford Library
Drawing Machine

Celebrating the fun of drawing in different ways this exhibition tells the story of young artists from Nottinghamshire special schools working with kinetic sculptor Jim Bond to use his inventive drawing machines to change the way we think about drawing. By removing direct control away from the artist and challenging the way we think about making a mark Jim and the young artists have enjoyed meeting the challenges of adapting and making drawing machines accessible for all.

Come and try the drawing machines for yourself at the exhibition opening on 19 October
