Saturday 14th May 2016
I’ve had a rather fun morning today, walking around Peel Park and taking in the new exhibits at Salford’s Museum and Art Gallery.
The museum is home to Salford’s Art and Sculpture Collections, as well as being home to the Local History Library. Before the Lowry Art Gallery was built on Salford Quays, it was also home to the Lowry Collection.
Currently the Gallery is hosting an exhibition of work by the workers of the Pilkington Glass Factory, and also a photographic exhibition of the work of the Salford Born Musician – Graham Nash…Of Crosby,Stills,Nash and Young.
I enjoyed looking at the various pieces on display – but one particularly caught my eye 🙂
This little multi coloured glass pig…made in the Pilkington factory by one of the workforce.
After walking round the galleries, I took a look around the Victorian street recreated on the ground floor. I’ve wrote a couple of pieces on this on here and you can find them on my blog posts or on my Allpoetry profile.
