Hodgkinson Builders have helped on a Contemporary Art, Football & The Derby County Collection – at the QUAD Derby called “The Pride and the Passion”
The exhibition is a celebration of the achievements of our local team Derby County and Football in general. It has been well supported and had a lot of visitors.
Hodgkinson Builders contribution is the loan of the Steve Bloomer Boots and the building of a panel of brickwork with bricks re-claimed from the Baseball Ground.
Ian Hodgkinson is also hoping to lend out his painting of Steve Bloomer to the exhibition.
The exhibition is in full swing at the moment and when it is freshened up the painting is hopefully going to be displayed.
The canvas was painted by Andy Edwards who is the artist behind the Steve Bloomer memorial and the Clough Taylor Statue.
It has never been shown publicly before, so the possibility is very exciting.
