Angel of the North

Possibly the largest angel in the world, the Angel of the North commemorates the miners who worked in the area, but also reflects the spiritual aspects of Antony Gormley's personality and his fascination with the human body. Accredited Lecturer Frank Woodgate explains Gormley's vision 


Our Societies support hundreds of local arts and heritage projects. Each day we highlight a grant given in 2021.  

The National Horse Racing Museum has received a grant from The Arts Society Newmarket. The world home of horse racing, it informs the local community about the history of racing and offers temporary and permanent exhibitions, education, workshops and open days for the local and wider community. The grant will be used to offer free entry and activities to families living in poverty.

All donations from the Artvent Calendar will go towards The Arts Society’s grant giving fund, which awards grants to help preserve our artistic heritage, support the skills of artists and makers, and improve access to the arts for all.

Interesting content but I would have liked more photos of the Angel and other works mentioned in the lecture.
