The Fabric of Bedford: The Harpur Trust Art Competition

Online Exhibition


Before the Covid-19 pandemic, The Harpur Trust Art Competition would have culminated in an exhibition at The Higgins Bedford, but is now available to view online only.


This exhibition of selected work produced by local children and young people aged 4-18 from across all Bedford Borough schools is the third Harpur Trust biennial art competition. 


The Fabric of Bedford captures the heart of Bedford life in a variety of art mediums including drawing, painting, printmaking and collage. To support schools entering the competition, the Harpur Trust funded over 30 workshops led by local artists resulting in a colourful display that reflects the uniqueness of Bedford Borough.


Please note that this exhibition is available to view online only and is not on display at The Higgins Bedford.
