What is art? Where does it come from? How does it develop? What is it for? How does it work?
What makes something 'art'? Is it the feeling it gives you, its cultural significance, the meaning behind it or can anything be art? Art is often approached as a clearly defined arrangement of artistic periods or a list of artists who have made 'important' art works.
This ambitious exhibition presents you, the viewer, with a range of art from pre-history to the modern day and asks you to define what makes it art. Take the opportunity to write your own labels to accompany the artworks on display.
William Morris once said: 'I don't want art for the few; any more than education for the few; or freedom for the few'.
Art is personal to each of us, and every viewpoint is equally valid. This exhibition becomes a discussion on art and creativity; a collection of thoughts and ideas.
Examine artworks spanning the centuries from artists including; Lucien Freud, Yves Klein, Jack Vettriano, L.S. Lowry and Jeremy Deller, and join in the conversation.
