View our Borough Art Collection online
You can view our online record of the Borough Art Collection, with information on the artists and the artworks.
We will be adding to the database, and would like to hear from anyone who has information on any of the artists or works in our collection.
In some cases, we have additional information on the artists, which is not included in this database, and we welcome research enquiries.
We are only able to include images of work if we have the permission of the copyright holder and so some of the images are not featured if we have been unable to trace them.
