Community Art Displays at Sainsburys', Welwyn Garden City

Sainsburys has accepted, as part of the planning consent for their new store in Church Road, Welwyn Garden City, that they would enable displays of community art on their premises. Specifically, in three of the large casement windows which face out on to Parkway.

Welwyn Hatfield Museum Service has responsibility to promote the availability of this display space and acts as a point of contact between Store Managers at Sainsburys Welwyn Garden City branch and those groups who wish to exhibit their work on the premises.

The museum service is encouraging a broad range of community art groups and organisations to come forward to apply to use this display space at Sainsburys.

The Sainsburys display windows are located at the back of the store and face into Parkway in Welwyn Garden City.  It is recommended that you view the windows before applying for an exhibition slot to get an idea of the size and nature of the space available.
