0 Reviews

Re-opening in autumn 2014. Famous for its collections of art and design, the Whitworth Art Gallery which is part of the University of Manchester, is home to an impressive range of watercolours, prints, drawings, modern art and sculpture, as well as the largest collections of textiles and wallpapers outside London.

The Whitworth uses its collections to exploring different themes, as well as hosting a programme of innovative touring exhibitions. Curators regularly change the artworks on display in the galleries and provide access to reserve collections, especially for study purposes.

A selection of tours, lectures, practical workshops and concerts accompanies the exhibition programme. The displays are changed frequently. For information on current exhibitions please go on-line or contact general enquiries.
