Picture Stockport

Bringing the known and hidden artworks of Stockport to life

About the project

Bringing to life the known and hidden artworks of Stockport

From the historical to modern masters, traditional to contemporary, marvels of Victorian engineering, local street corners to the football terraces, and the humdrum of everyday life to the party atmosphere of the carnival — they’re all depicted and they all paint a picture of Stockport.

From January – February 2017 the people of Stockport and beyond were asked to vote for their favourite work of art of Stockport. The top-eight works in the public vote have now been reimagined by contemporary artists and poets with the help of the public. See the new works alongside the originals in a brand new exhibition from 23 June – 14 July 2017.
