Derby University Fine Art students and graduates present new site specific artwork at Derby Cathedral. In the midst of lockdown Derby Cathedral and the School of Arts were in conversation about the possibility of an art exhibition that offered a reflection on the current situation. The Derby University Fine Art students and graduates responded to the proposition with enthusiasm and their exhibition - Calm Through Storm is a small collection of selected new work with ideas of hope, peace and love at its heart.

The exhibition is open and free to view inside Derby Cathedral during our usual opening times Monday - Saturday 11.00 am - 3.00 pm and Sunday 1.00 - 4.00 pm.
