Amateur artists, schools and community groups entered a range of pieces for the project, inspired by their favourite buildings, open spaces, walks, views and local attractions.

Over the summer, entries were displayed at our four museums – Haden Hill House, Manor House Museum, Oak House Museum and Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery – and visitors voted for their favourite at each site.

Now you can vote for the overall winner, which will be announced in October.

Councillor Steve Trow, Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for culture and core council services, said: “I want to thank all the artists who entered the competition, which has given a really good insight into people’s favourite ‘hidden treasures’ in Sandwell.

“Now we have our four finalists, I encourage everyone to take a look and vote for their favourite piece of art.”
