Score a free day out with art inspired by the beautiful game
This free art exhibition highlights the paintings of West Bromwich Albion's artist-in-residence, Paine Proffitt. There are more than a dozen original paintings that have been used for match day programme covers by the Premiership club, but seeing them in their original, larger format gives more perspective to Proffitt's designs.
Paintings used for West Bromwich Albion programmes
A small corner of the ground floor of The Public Museum and Art Gallery in West Bromwich is being used to display The Book of Albion collection of paintings. It is located near the rear entrance closest to Queen's Square, in West Bromwich.
The artwork incorporate heroes from the club, such as Cyril Regis, and uses styles that link football and religion. There is also an art deco Albion painting and another remembering the 10 year anniversary of the death of player and fantasy football TV show star Jeff Astle.
