Discover a showcase of work by local students from Penpol School and Mounts Bay Academy

Students from Penpol School, Hayle and Mounts Bay Academy, Penzance worked with environmental artist Greg Humphries and the Tate St Ives Schools Team in Spring and Summer 2021. They created sculptures for their school grounds inspired by their local environment. This exhibition is part of ‘Making Absence Visible’ – a project showcasing the creative voices of local communities, whilst the gallery’s usual workshops and events for children and young people have been postponed due to the global pandemic.

  • There is lift access and level access to most areas of the gallery
  • Accessible toilets are located on the third floor at Tate St Ives close to Gallery 6
