Friday 17 December 2021 - Monday 2 May 2022

Born in Sheffield, Kenneth Steel was a skilled artist and commercial illustrator who created visuals for classic mid-century travel posters and architectural landmarks, yet his name remains little known.

This exhibition sheds new light on Steel’s considerable achievements, bringing together the most comprehensive collection of his art ever to go on display, including over 100 drawings, paintings, prints, posters and more.
