The 2020 Sculpture Trail at Raveningham featured 48 selected artists and makers across 3 acres of grounds who responded to the theme of Creative Odyssey. Artists developed ideas, artwork, sculpture, site specific works, stories, magic and more for the meadows, pond, gardens, and woodland at Raveningham. By letting their imaginations and aspirations soar they created a sculpture exhibition that inspired and uplifted visitors. The Sculpture Trail team is committed to encouraging public interaction with contemporary art in a rural setting as well as creating space and opportunity for artists to show and sell their work to a diverse audience.
