Braintree District is home to a diverse collection of public artworks ranging from traditional bronze statues to contemporary metal sculptures. Some well known artists have made their mark in the District; Braintree is home to an Eric Gill stone carving whilst Richard, the son of the famous printmaker Edward Bawden, has created glass etchings for the Church of St Mary in Great Bardfield. Most works have been produced as the result of commissions from public benefactors, local authorities or developers in connection with new building projects, and the great majority were created within the last hundred years. Often local residents have been involved in consultation during the design of the work, and they have sometimes also participated in its creation.
The directory of arts in schools is available here.
