The New Art Gallery Walsall will be celebrating its 20th birthday on the 20th February 2020, and they are inviting the public to come and celebrate with them.

To mark this special occasion, they are bringing together works of contemporary art collected over the last 20 years, many from artists who have featured in the gallery's exhibitions programme. Works span a wide range of media and scale.

They have selected both international artists as well as those closer to home and from across the country. Themes explored include the changing urban landscape, the Black Country, the impact of globalisation and people and places. Participating artists include Mohamed Bourouissa, Lee Bul, Ruth Claxton, Martin Creed, Rita Donagh, Brian Griffin, Romuald Hazoumé, Mahtab Hussain, Andrew Jackson, Martin Parr, Mark Power, Juneau Projects, Hew Locke, David Shrigley, Dayanita Singh, Soheila Sokhanvari, Andrew Tift, Grazia Toderi and Stuart Whipps. The exhibition extends from Floor 3 across the building.

On Saturday 22nd February, the gallery will host an Arty Party, including music, workshops and games for all the family. The free event will run from 11am-4pm, with all welcome.
