'Magnificent' new work of art unveiled at prominent Nuneaton building

'Magnificent' new work of art has been unveiled at a prominent Nuneaton building. The front of the Nuneaton Heritage Centre now plays home to an incredible welcome sign.

It has been made out of mosaics and greets our visitors as they enter the centre’s courtyard. It was created by artist Ros Ingram.

John Burton, chair of the Heritage Centre off Avenue Road, said: "It is truly a work of art and we are pleased beyond measure that Escape Arts chose us to be the recipients of their project."

Nuneaton and Bedworth's Mayor Councillor Martin Walsh unveiled the piece of art, which was made by the artist at the beginning of 2024. It was created through Nuneaton Escape Arts.

"The installation is on display, pride of place, at the entrance of the Heritage Centre and celebrates the people and heritage of Nuneaton," a spokesperson for Nuneaton Escape Arts said.

Nuneaton Heritage Centre is run by a band of volunteers to preserve artefacts and documents relating to Nuneaton and its industrial past. It boasts a 'Victorian Schoolroom' where visitors are taken back to Victorian school days.

The centre also boasts a museum 'with a difference' as most of the exhibits are local donations and acquisitions and reflect Nuneaton through the years. It has everything from football to toys, games and typewriters mixed in, a Victorian Parlour and bedroom, and 1940’s scullery.
