10th Birthday Celebrations – The Atkinson in Conversation

Our brilliant team are a passionate bunch! We love the arts and are dedicated to making The Atkinson a vibrant and welcoming space for everyone. We love learning about and sharing history, art, and culture with the public.

To celebrate The Atkinson’s 10th Birthday, we have asked volunteers and staff to identify their favourite painting or object from our collection.

To learn more about our sculpture Bedtime Boy by Laura Ford with volunteer Dave, pop in to our galleries on Thursday 23 November at 1pm.

Dave has chosen this Sculpture as he has an appreciation and understanding of sculpture and says he “always enjoys seeing sculpture as part of our exhibitions and collection.”

Dave has volunteered at The Atkinson since 2016 and welcomes visitors to the building, can provide an Introduction to our exhibitions in our Art Galleries and helps to install exhibitions.  Dave previously studied and created sculpture, having gained a BA (Hons) in Visual Art and Art History and his MA in Sculpture Studies.

No need to book, simply head to our Gallery on the first floor on Thursday 23 November for a start at 1pm.
