Family of Man

Saturday 28 March to Sunday 31 May 2020

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.

Everyone’s An Artist

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.
