Trust New Art in the Midlands

An image of the design of the Look!Look!Look! pavilion

In gardens, on hills, in valleys, throughout mansions, halls and castles, national and international artists give us new ways of seeing and experiencing National Trust places.

Trust New Art is a programme of contemporary art inspired by the places we care for.

Working with staff, volunteers and specialists, artists have been exploring and researching locations and histories to create new work.
