Students from the University of Salford’s Fashion, Image Making and Styling course have been exploring the idea of family and what that means today. Taking inspiration from the Family of Man exhibition at MoMA in 1955, they have been considering relationships within families, communities and the world we live in to present an exhibition of photography.

Saturday 6 June to Sunday 4 October 2020
To celebrate Children’s Art Week in June this year we have selected a range of artworks from the collection looking at different styles, subject matters and techniques used by artists. Local schools are involved to help us to interpret the work and visitors of all ages are invited to take inspiration from the paintings and create their own work to be included in a changing display as part of the exhibition.
Museum Takeover Day
We will be hosting a Kids in Museums Takeover Day this summer – local school children will be invited to come and ‘take over’ the Museum by running activities inspired by the Everyone’s An Artist exhibition. Keep an eye out for more information!
Saturday 19 September to Tuesday 1 December 2020
In September we will be holding The Open  exhibition. This is an opportunity for artists who live, work, study or were born in Salford to exhibit at the Museum. Please visit the website for updates and information on how to apply later in 2020.
