Broomhill National Sculpture Prize

Expect to see a giant Aeolian harp, a machine made by a machine, embryonic forms and a canopy of trees amongst the finalists vying to win the 2017 Broomhill National Sculpture Prize.

The 10 shortlisted sculptures will be on display at Broomhill from June 1st as well as winning pieces from over the last 8 years. The prize showcases new and emerging UK-based sculptors and has a well-deserved reputation for demonstrating a distinctive array of influences and styles.

And you have a chance to vote in our own General Election too. The Public Speaks competition lets you get involved and have your say by voting for your favourite. Our election starts on 1st June and this year's winner could be blue, red, yellow or a myriad of colours as demonstrated by last year's winner, the unforgettable Quarrelsome 15kg by northern artist Lee Brady.
