Welcome to the Birmingham Art Map.
The Art Map is designed to make it easy to discover, explore and enjoy the great art, ideas, culture and creativity made by Birmingham for Birmingham. All exhibitions and events listed are free unless otherwise stated.
The city is now home to a fantastic range of art galleries, artist-led projects, studio groups and individuals who programme public exhibitions and events throughout the year.
The Art Map can only list some of the exhibitions and events on offer so we have created this website as a simple, central digital information point with links to all the listed organisations’ websites to make accessing up to date programme information easy.
Birmingham Art Map is produced by Ruth Claxton and Cheryl Jones, working together as Self-Service and assisted by Sarah Jerrard-Dinn.

This edition marks the Art Map’s 5th Birthday. It has been brilliant to see it grow, along with Birmingham’s Art Scene since 2013, but we have decided that it is now time to move on and focus on our other projects at Grand Union, STEAMhouse and Eastside Projects.
We would like to pass the Art Map onto someone else so if you are interested in taking it over, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
