19th May 2017 - 3rd September 2017
Lyrics and languages, hubbub and stillness, heritage and science have all inspired 100 illustrators to produce a collection of striking artwork that reflect their relationship with sound in our diverse and multi-layered cities.
Themes include wildlife, nightlife, music, markets, transport and sport. Visitors will enjoy illustrations that visually interpret the sounds we hear about us day and night – from the common to the curious, to a recognisable street and cityscape through to visual soundscapes of buzzing colour.
The one hundred works were chosen from over two thousand competition entries for the prestigious Prize for Illustration. The competition is open to illustrators and students of illustration throughout the world. The Prize for Illustration is organised in partnership with The Association of Illustrators.
