Getting art out of the galleries and in to the wider public sphere is a challenge that curator Elly Clarke has taken on for the next 3 months.

Small, unique edition artworks by 40 local and international artists that cross over artforms and continents, have been installed into a variety of businesses. Shops, cafes, bars and restaurants across the city have been used to showcase works as a means of bringing art to new audiences, new audiences to art and new contexts in which art can be shown.

Launched in November the frames will remain in place for three months, with work changing when sold. A website has been set up to act as the mirror to show what is on display in the city. All work is also for sale with a maximum price of £750 and the pieces can be purchased with an interest free loan via the Own Art scheme.

Yorks Bakery Cafe will act as the central hub during the three month exhibition, where you can find out more about the project, or purchase tickets for tours led by Birmingham artists, curators and business owners as well as by members of the FRAME team.
