Commissioned artist for Bodmin Jail

The internationally renowned Devon artist, Becky Bettesworth, has been commissioned to create a very special, exclusive artwork for Bodmin Jail, which will only be available to purchase in the Gift Shop of the new Bodmin Jail Attraction launching Summer 2020.

Becky, whose recognisable prints draw inspiration from the classic railway posters of the 1930s, is well known both in the UK and internationally for bringing a modern and fresh look to some of the most exciting spots to visit in the country. The moody and imposing print of Bodmin Jail forms part of Becky’s collection of Cornwall’s landmarks, including St Michael’s Mount, Bude, Padstow and Watergate Bay.

Bodmin Jail, which was first opened in 1779 as Cornwall’s County Gaol, is in the middle of a £40million re-development that includes a brand new visitor attraction due to open Summer 2020. Becky’s artwork gives a new lease of life to the iconic building, giving visitors a chance to purchase an inspired and exclusive memory from their visit to the jail.
