Current and upcoming exhibitions
The Nature of Calligraphy
‘The Nature of Calligraphy’ by the Leicestershire Calligraphers has now been extended.
The exhibition will be on display until Friday October 30, 2020.
The work on display is varied, using nature as inspiration and subject matter, as well as in the design or physical writing surface.
The process of calligraphy is also shown in the gallery with a recreated writer’s desk area and a display of historical objects from the collections.
On display in the community case:
Do You See What I See (DYSWIS)
Expect to see objects speaking for themselves with giant speech bubbles and recordings of participants voices.
The community case turned into a People’s Gallery and touch screen to view more of the objects in the online ‘People’s Gallery’.
There will be short film about the project (coming soon) and a family trail around the whole museum with an opportunity to add your own voice to this unique exhibition.
