British Art Show 8 artworks arrived to NUA on the ‘The History Train’, a parade of six horse drawn carts delivering BAS8 art works and pieces to venues across Norwich.
The rare-breed Suffolk punch horses were decorated in horse brasses designed by the local public and created in NUA workshops by London contemporary artist Alan Kane (pictured).
The History Train drew upon the city’s rich history of heavy horse procession with new contemporary art creating an impressive live spectacular for the public to celebrate the launch of BAS8 in Norwich.
The History Train set off from Chapelfield Gardens, the parade delivering to Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery, Norwich University of the Arts culminating at The Forum.
British Art Show runs from 24 June – 4 September 2016 in Norwich, showcasing over 40 contemporary artists across the city.
