Millfield Link exhibition showcases beauty and history of area

A new exhibition showcases local art work based around Millfield, shining a light on local artists as well celebrating the area's history.

The unique exhibition hosted by Peterborough Presents debuted today (November 5) at the Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery. 

It was created with the support of local organisations and individuals across the community, including Community First and Gladstone Connect at the Allama Iqbal Centre.  

A documentary around the restoration of the the Link Road mural, which was originally painted in 1982, takes centre stage with the exhibition aiming to celebrate Millfield's history and its people, both past and present. 

The gallery itself includes unique paintings from Sophie Crisp to historical photos captured by Chris Porsz. 

Faisal The Artist is one of the curators that was celebrated at the exhibition.

He grew up on Cromwell Road around the corner from the Link Mural and said: "This is truly a defining moment for me as an artist.

"It makes me feel as though I am a part of Peterborough. To have my artwork, as a British-born Pakistani showcased in a predominately white institution is ground breaking and words cannot describe how I feel."

If you would like to see these pieces in person visit the Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery. The Exhibition runs through to Sunday, December 4.
