Birmingham Creates: The Open

05 June - 05 July 2024
9:00 - 20:00

Colmore Business District (BID) is hosting a month long outdoor print exhibition across Birmingham from Wednesday 5 June to Friday 5 July.

Earlier this year, Colmore BID launched their inaugural open art competition which called for the most exciting, undiscovered artwork of 2024 from emerging artists across Birmingham.

Following the 2024 competition call, Birmingham Creates: The Open is culminating in a free physical outdoor group exhibition across June and July. Among the artworks are painted portraits, abstract compositions, photographs and collages of the city’s well-loved landmarks, exquisite drawings and more. 

The exhibition is free to attend.
