Micro-Sculptures: In The Eye Of A Needle
July 6, 2018 - December 19, 2018
BLINK AND YOU’LL MISS IT!
A fantastic new exhibition of sculptures – set in the eye of a needle
Visitors to the museum will be among the first to view 20 micro-sculptures by internationally renowned Dr Willard Wigan MBE.
Willard is a self-taught artist, famous for creating the World’s smallest sculptures. He is listed in the Guinness Book of Records for the smallest artworks in history and awarded an MBE for his services to art. This is the first exhibition of Willard’s work in the Cotswolds and will feature new pieces not previously shown to the public. Some of the sculptures are smaller than a grain of sand and completely invisible to the naked eye. As such, the needles are presented in a microscope for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Broadway Museum and Art Gallery and Broadway Luxury, a neighbouring art, home and lifestyle showroom, which currently houses two of the micro-sculptures.
Willard’s work was shown on Channel 4 in July. World’s Tiniest Masterpieces went behind the scenes to find out exactly how he sculpted his tiny art pieces to sit in the eye of a needle.
This exhibition has been extended until the 19th December due to popular demand. Watch this space for 2019 exhibitions.
