Weʼre raising £6,000 to Enable the 12 month loan of two sculptures by Halima Cassell MBE and support Shrewsbury Arts Trail CIC. Pop a bit in the pot 🙌

Don't have time to donate right now?


We're beyond excited that Shrewsbury has been offered the opportunity to have two beautiful sculptures by such a prestigious, British contemporary artist on public view for 12 months in an iconic location at Shrewsbury Castle. We need to raise £6,000 to enable the loan by helping us cover insurance and installation costs.

Shrewsbury Arts Trail CIC is now in its fourth year, with a mission to bring unique and high-quality contemporary art to be enjoyed by the public for free. It celebrates our vibrant arts community and boosts the reputation of our county as a vibrant and welcoming cultural destination.

Artist: Halima Cassell MBE

Title: "Memento Mori"

Medium: Solid Cast Iron Edition: Unique

"The tear-drop shape of these sculptures holds a deep meaning for me. They're like buds about to bloom, ready to unveil the vibrant life they hold inside. Or perhaps they resemble flickering flames, reminding us of the fleeting nature of life's journey" - Halima Cassell

Artist Bio: Halima Cassell MBE is a renowned British artist celebrated for her intricate sculptural works inspired by geometric patterns and organic forms. Born in Pakistan and raised in the UK, Cassell's multicultural upbringing deeply influences her artistic practice, blending traditional craftsmanship with contemporary aesthetics. Her work is collected by prestigious collections worldwide, including most recently, Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London and the Hepworth Gallery. Cassell's sculptures have garnered international acclaim for their striking beauty and profound symbolism, exploring themes of identity, memory, and the human experience.

We have only just been offered this wonderful opportunity and with the timing being what it is, we can not apply for a grant to cover this cost. Please donate to allow Shrewsbury to borrow these stunning sculptures untill Summer 2025.
