Art and Design students from Central College Nottingham have created a special exhibition at intu Broadmarsh in Nottingham city centre. Hidden Beauties, an exciting display of insects made from recycled materials, is free to view in ‘The Wedge’ next to Broadmarsh bus station from this Friday 5 February to Saturday 26 March.
This is the first external work experience project for this group of Level 1 art and design students.
Central’s Curriculum Manager for Art and Design, Mandi Chandler, said:
“The students have done such a good job of creating hundreds of decorative insects and they worked hard to display them beautifully. This kind of work experience is so valuable as it shows how a real life exhibition comes together. It also means the students get to showcase their own creations to the people of Nottingham.”
Hidden Beauties is part of Trash to Treasure, a series of innovative exhibitions and workshops celebrating creative upcycling, taking place at venues across Nottingham from February until March. A range of partners are hosting events as well as more from Central’s art, design and photography students.
