Free family drop in at the Mead Gallery

For one day only, the Mead Gallery is taking over Warwick Arts Centre and inviting families with young children to join the fun on Saturday 31 May, 12pm-art4pm.

In the exhibition, All That Is Solid Melts Into Air, now on in the Mead Gallery (2 May – 21 June 2014), one of the UK’s leading artists, Jeremy Deller, takes a personal look at the impact of the Industrial Revolution on British popular culture, and its persisting influence on our lives today.

To coincide with the exhibition, the Mead Gallery has organised an exciting programme of events for visitors of all ages to enjoy.

Creative Histories: All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

On Saturday 31 May for Creative Histories, there will be a bus - Museum on the Move - parked outside Warwick Arts Centre with museum objects and children’s interactives on board.

Families can pick up a specially designed sculpture trail of industrially-themed works in the University’s Art Collection sited across campus and Gallery staff will be available in the Mead Gallery to introduce children to Victorian schoolyard games.

In addition, Coventry artist, Jo Gane, will be in the Arts Centre’s Helen Martin Studio throughout the day, turning it into a Camera Factory with the assistance of all children who come along. Children will have the opportunity to make their own pinhole cameras using recycled materials and personalise them using materials inspired by the Jeremy Deller-curated exhibition.

All of the events are free drop-ins and no booking is required so just come along to enjoy the day.
