Heritage Open Day | Opening Day of Connections – Saturday 14 September

Heritage Open Days 2024: a celebration of the city’s heritage taking place across Worcester from 6 – 15 September. Here’s what’s on at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum:

Join us for the opening of our exhibition, Connections – The Worcester City Collection, in Conversation with the Community.

Saturday 14 September, 10am – 4pm. Entry is free.

This exciting and thought-provoking new exhibition features artworks from Worcester’s own collection, selected by community groups in 2023 and 2024. On show will be unexpected treasures and old favourites including John Collier’s ‘Clytemnestra’ (c. 1914) and ‘Market Day’ (1907) by William Frank Calderon. The exhibition explores people’s different responses to art and the emotions and perspectives it can evoke.

Get involved! Throughout the opening day you can help us to make a community artwork by creating a joint collage linked to one of our art works. This will then be displayed in the activity space whilst the Connections exhibition is on.

There will be short ‘spotlight’ talks in the exhibition that will last for about 10 minutes, discussing one of the art works on display. These will be at 10:30, 11:30, 13:30 and 14:30.

There will also be live music to enjoy and a trail for children to take part in (£1, purchase from the museum shop).
