32 postcards of free original art will be placed across Nottingham City by Fine Art Degree students at Central College Nottingham for the public to find and keep on Thursday 3rd April. Eight students have worked in collaboration with Rosie MacLennan coordinator of the 52 Artists for Bulwell project to explore ideas around what makes art accessible to people who aren’t usually interested by art, challenging what is a gallery and where art can be experienced.

One example of the art that you can pick up – a blending of old and new…

The artwork’s destiny is dependent on the finder’s view of the work, whether they decide it to be valuable or worthless.

On the back of each postcard sized artwork there will be contact details so that the finder can, if they choose contact the artist.
