Students work part of display at museum

Posted onPosted on 8th Feb

Artwork created by students from The Samworth Church Academy, Mansfield, is on display at Mansfield Museum.

In July last year, students with three-dimensional talents were offered the opportunity to work alongside local artist and sculptor Philip Cox.

They created a range of sculptures in Cox’s signature medium of cardboard.

The exhibition at the museum is running alongside a retrospective of the artist’s work until 18th March.

Paper Sculptures – a 30-Year Retrospective highlights Cox’s love of cardboard and paper developed during the 1980s.

The sculptures are constructed on a cardboard frame and fine detail added by moulding and shaping paper that has been soaked in wallpaper paste.
