Picturing Sheffield

Saturday 29 November 2014 - Sunday 12 April 2015
*** Please note, the Picturing Sheffield gallery will be closing for the day from 12.30pm on Sunday 24 October to set up for a wedding. You can still visit the gallery in the morning and the rest of the museum will remain open throughout the day***

Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in Europe and has been called the largest village in England. Yet the city has rarely been called beautiful.

Picturing Sheffield will journey through Sheffield past and present to examine the relationship between views of the city and the identity of the people who have lived and died here. From the ghosts of former landmarks to the contemporary regeneration of the city, this exhibition asks what we mean by beauty and whether it can be found in unexpected places. 

Picturing Sheffield includes work by key artists from the 1700s to the present day, including JMW Turner, Joe Scarborough, Bill Brandt, Frank Constantine, Godfrey Sykes, Linda Benedict Jones and John Hoyland.
