This free daily tour gives you the chance to look at some of the Whitworth Art Gallery’s collection in detail. Learn more about the ever evolving exhibitions as each new one appears. The gallery is encased by Whitworth park, a cosy natural space that combines sculpture with trees, each structure complimenting the other. Thanks to the open and light friendly architecture of the gallery, the space feels like a small green haven amidst an urban sprawl.
Over the course of the tour, you’ll get to know the artists behind the works a little better and discover the contexts in which individual pieces were created. It’s a great way to understand some of the more challenging pieces and innovative processes in the Whitworth’s collection.
Tours run daily from 2 pm.
