Paralympic Heritage - Stories from Bradford: Exhibition Launch

Cartwright Hall Art Gallery

Sat 26 Jan 2019

Refreshments served. Free entry. All welcome.

Visit the accessible and interactive new exhibition in the beautiful setting of Cartwright Hall Art Gallery. Witness just how far we have come as a nation in supporting and celebrating disability sport. Using a range of displays, memorabilia and art, visitors will learn about local and national Paralympians, all of whom have contributed to Paralympic heritage. Come and find out how it all began with the inspirational story of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann and the D-day landings.

As part of this prestigious partnership with the National Paralympic Heritage Trust, Cartwright Hall Art Gallery is very proud to present the Official London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic prints, a special celebration of the meeting of art and sport. Artists such as Sarah Morris, Tracey Emin, Fiona Banner and Bob & Roberta Smith include their Paralympic inspired works, alongside Bridget Riley; Chris Offili, Howard Hodgkin; Michael Craig-Martin, Martin Creed, Anthea Hamilton, Gary Hume and Rachel Whiteread.
