York Heroes

February 13

|Recurring Event (See all)
26 Jan - 25 Feb

A fascinating collection of six diverse portraits of York’s heroes, as chosen by the public and created by York artist Sue Clayton.

Sue set out on an ambitious project to paint six of the city’s great and good.  The idea for the York Heroes project came after the devastating floods of Boxing Day 2015.  ” I was aware that in York we all came together in the floods.  It made me realise there are people out there who do amazing things and it would be nice to celebrate them in painting.”

“The six subjects are not flood heroes, but heroic in their lives.   I wanted to find people who deserve recognition for making a difference to the lives of people in York and its surroundings.”
