The Very Young at Art A team of artists and twenty-six Birmingham Nursery Schools have collaborated to produce original works of public art. This has created an exciting trail of interactive artwork around the city. Each artwork is the result of the skill of an artist in incorporating ideas of children, teachers, parents and community into works that engage the school but can also be enjoyed by the general public. An annual open day will be held on the second Friday in July each year to view these artworks, but works can also be viewed individually.
