Study Day - St Albans Museum and Gallery
October 16, 10.30am-3pm, St Albans Museum and Gallery
Join the South and East Museums Federation to explore the newly opened St Albans Museum and Gallery. Hear from staff about the redevelopment, their work with schools, families and volunteers. We'll also hear about their interesting partnership with their local university to develop exhibitions. Based in the Town Hall, there will be plenty of opportunity to explore the displays and art installations based in the beautiful historic spaces; the Assembly Room, Courtroom and Cells.
The museum will be hosting a Hayward Touring exhibition 'Hand Drawn Action Packed' featuring the work of ten international artists with the theme of drawing and storytelling. There will also be an exhibition 'A Lasting Peace?' about remembrance and the legacy of the First World War in St Albans and beyond.
You will also be able to explore permanent displays called The City that Went Uphill which charts the development of St Albans from roman town to modern city and the St Albans On Demand gallery which features objects from the collection that have been nominated by staff, volunteers and members of the public.
