Dr Willard Wigan MBE, the world’s leading micro-sculptor, is to bring new UNBELIEVABLE work to Sutton Coldfield Town Hall this April.
His pieces of art, some smaller than a full stop in a newspaper, cannot be seen with the naked eye. They are presented in the eye of a needle or on the head of a pin and displayed under specially constructed microscopes.
‘Willard Wigan Through The Looking Glass’ will run from April 1-26 (not 7th) at the charity trust venue and is a joint project between the Town Hall and the Birmingham based artist. The micro-sculptor, who recently broke his own world record for the world’s smallest sculpture – a baby set inside a human hair – has just completed a new Alice in Wonderland sculpture for his Sutton Coldfield visit.
A pop up cafe will be available featuring art from the Sutton Coldfield Society of Artists, with activities available for school and youth groups.
There will be a launch evening on Monday April 1, featuring a meet and greet with the artist, canapés and welcome drink, plus tours of the Town Hall.
‘An Evening with Willard Wigan’, featuring a talk by the artist, Q&A and entry to the exhibition will take place on Thursday April 11.
Town Hall exhibition organiser Julie Rennison said “Willard has a huge affinity with Birmingham, having held his first exhibition in the city that has become his home, and having had such huge crowds at venues such as the Library of Birmingham."
Willard, who has a permanent exhibition at The Broadway Museum in the Cotswolds, will follow his Sutton Coldfield show with a tour of the USA around the Trinity Galleries chain.

THE LATE Cyrille Regis was honoured with a tram named after him in his honour last weekend.
The tram was unveiled at a special ceremony organised by Transport for West Midlands, following the first anniversary of his death in January 2018. Regis died from a heart attack.
Regis is a legend in the Midlands having played for West Bromwich Albion, Coventry, Aston Villa and Wolves and is thought of as one of the English game’s pioneering black footballers.
The former West Bromwich Albion player’s family, friends and teammates attended the event, where his widow Julia Regis said messages of support from fans "has helped me to get through what has been the most difficult year of my life".
The new tram bearing Regis' name will be operated on the Midlands Metro service, a direct line from West Bromwich into Birmingham city centre.

Leaders Who Make Things Happen“Personal development is key to creating leaders who make things happen.”
A direct quote from our podcast guest Lorlett Hudson. Learning is growing because we only know what we know right now. We all need to continue to grow as it’s part of the process to get on a larger stage and become leaders who make things happen. Who you were yesterday isn’t who you are today. Our mind is like an elastic band we can teach it anything and if we keep practicing we will get better at the things we learn but it is important to take actionable steps after we have had practice. Lorlett has many tips for how you can improve and become leaders who make things happen.
Strive for continuous improvement instead of perfection - Kim Collins
I met with a client this week, and we were reviewing the commitments that she had made during our previous session. On one of her commitments, she sheepishly admitted that she had only kept her commitment about 50% of the time. I congratulated her on her progress, and simply said “Strive for progress, not perfection".
