From Millworkers to Millennials: Jean Hobson

From Millworkers to Millennials: paintings, drawings and screen prints by Jean Hobson

When Jean Hobson started drawing Manchester’s old buildings in 2007, she did not realise she was charting a pivotal moment in the City’s history.

This new body of work explores the story of Manchester’s second renaissance. It looks at how the city’s rich architectural heritage shares its space with the bold new buildings which make the city such an exciting place in which to live, work and relax.

Jean takes an original and colourful look at Manchester’s vibrant transformation, she hopes visitors will take a fresh look at their surroundings, appreciating the past and celebrating the present.
