'Conflict' Pop-Up Exhibition

Members of the Boys' Division Arts Council hosted an exhibition at Bolton's Market Place in June 2015. The theme was 'Conflict' and many of the pieces related to the centenary of the First World War. Former pupil Sir Ian McKellen, along with many famous creative practitioners including illustrator Chris Aaran, submitted original artwork to be displayed and auctioned alongside pupils' work. A selection of pieces from the exhibition can be viewed in this gallery.
