Enlightenment Gallery at Derby Museum and Art Gallery
October 3, 2012 6 Comments
Derby Museum and Art Gallery are planning a new permanent Enlightenment Gallery that will open in spring 2014. The key theme of the exhibition will be ‘Ideas that changed the world’ and this will be broken down into three sub themes;
The Sky Above us and The World Around us
The Earth Beneath our Feet
Who We Are
There will be a ‘taster’ exhibition opening next summer which will showcase some of the Enlightenment! purchases and will be a chance to trial ideas for the 2014 exhibition.
The Exhibitions team at Derby are keen for the exhibition to have a cabinet of curiosity feel and have been visiting museums across England to gain inspiration. You can find out more about the exhibition and research trips on Derby Museums blog.
