Plymouth Building its Future


A 16ft wide canvas is on public display at Devonport Guildhall. ‘Plymouth Building Its Future’ was painted by the Plymouth artist Robert Lenkiewicz and was commissioned in 1977 as a tribute to the architects, engineers and famous architectural landmarks of Plymouth. The Lenkiewicz Foundation approached Devonport Guildhall about displaying the piece after it was retrieved and exhibited in Germany for the first international exhibitions of Lenkiewicz’s work.

John-Paul Sommerville from The Lenkiewicz Foundation said: “It came out of storage in 2013 as part of the exhibition that travelled to Germany, but the owner was keen for us to find a home where it could be on more permanent display. In Devonport Guildhall we know we have found the perfect place.”

You can view Lenkiewicz’s piece at Devonport Guildhall for free until Wednesday 24th December.
