The sketches and video give a unique perspective on the thoughts and techniques behind the sculptures featured in “A Change of Heart”, currently on show at the University’s Harold Martin Botanic Garden.

Ten of the 20 artists featured in this year’s summer exhibition have provided drawings – both sketches of the featured sculptures and other work – which reveal some of the approaches and intentions behind the artists’ work.

The pieces are being exhibited throughout August at Embrace Arts, the University of Leicester’s arts centre, along with a film containing interviews with many of the artists.

“A Change of Heart” will be open until Sunday, October 27, and is open seven days a week, 10.00am to 4.00pm, with free entry except on special event days.
