Art Around Town

Around Bury St Edmunds

Art Around Town

Thursday 1 July – Thursday 30 September 2021

Art Around Town gave local artists a 10” pizza box and asked them the question: What makes Bury tick?

Around 500 local artists have been customising brown cardboard 10 inch pizza boxes.

The artists taking part have been invited to employ any medium or technique they choose, and take inspiration from the question “What makes Bury tick?’, in other words, the characters, landmarks and best kept secrets that give our town its unique feel.

You’ll be able to view these artworks within public buildings as well as and in the windows of local businesses in the centre of town. There are some very surprising locations including the aviaries in Abbey Gardens!

To keep up to speed with developments, to find out more about the artists, the stories behind their boxes and the businesses that are hosting, follow Art Around Town on Instagram.

Download the Art Around Town Art Finder map to see all the locations of the artworks.

Kindly supported by:

ICE Cafe, Our Bury St Edmunds, and West Suffolk Council
