Artists Mark the Legacy of Bosworth 1485

Exhibition of Artists’ Proposals

It is planned to commission a linked series of public artworks in the villages close to the site of the Battle of Bosworth Field, to mark the legacy of that epoch-making event and the subsequent history: Market Bosworth, Sutton Cheney, Dadlington and Stoke Golding.

Three artists have been selected from a national competition. Each has a distinguished record of art commissions in public places.

Each artist has developed a distinctive approach to the project, that is explained in this exhibition.

You can have your say

A response form and a pillar-box are provided. Please let us know your response to the artists’ ideas and your thoughts about the project.
