Your Invitation to join us for a Public Art Trail for Civic Day

This year, for Civic Day, the Coventry Society is celebrating Coventry’s fantastic heritage of public art.

Coventry has many fine works of Public Art, but in our busy lives we don’t always notice them. Have you ever wondered who the artist was? or what was the history of a particular piece of sculpture?

On Civic Day, Saturday 18th June, the Society will be putting on a Guided Trail of Public Art in the city. Our Vice Chairman, Paul Maddocks, will lead us on a trail around the city centre, talking about the subject of the artwork, the artists and other work the artist have done.

In the longer term we plan to ensure that all the Public Art in the city is recorded and we will ask your opinion about which pieces of art are worthy of being listed.

The free trail will start from the Lady Godiva Statue in Broadgate at 12.30pm on Saturday 18th June 2016 and will last for about two hours. This event is open to non-members and you don’t need to book. Just turn up on the day with your camera and a bottle of water if its hot.

Civic Day is a national celebration of civic pride. It is a day when communities across the country say "we care about where we live". Coventry’s Civic Day project is in support of Historic England’s campaign for the protection of post-war Public Art
