Wolverhampton Art Gallery is home to one of the UK’s largest and most significant Pop collections. The dedicated Pop Art gallery showcases these impressive artworks, as well as shining a light on less well known artists, with acclaimed retrospective exhibitions of Jann Haworth in 2011 and Pauline Boty in 2013. In 2012 the Art Gallery was a beneficiary of the Eric & Jean Cass Gift through the Contemporary Art Society and was donated 12 works by the couple - many of which are display in POP EUROPE!

Permanent displays focus on key periods in history alongside regularly changing exhibitions that embrace painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, multi-media, and more.
