Ruskin Gallery Displays
Each year, there are changing displays in the permanent gallery to highlight particular strengths and themes within the Ruskin Collection.
A RUSKIN RE-THINK AT THE RUSKIN COLLECTION - AUTUMN 2021
Our partners at Sheffield Museums Trust have recently confirmed that the Ruskin Collection Gallery will be closed from 20th September until 22nd October. 2021 Over the past few months they, in consultation with the Guild, have been working on what we're currently calling a 'Ruskin Re-think'. This involves a much-needed refreshment of the gallery spaces, which will offer new opportunities for the display of the wonderful riches of Ruskin's gift to the people of Sheffield, some of them old favourites and some which haven't been on show for many years.
An area for rotating temporary exhibitions - the opening one will focus on Ruskin's collection of bird illustrations - will be complemented by new spaces and facilities for relevant community involvement and activities. Overall, the emphasis will be on introducing visitors to Ruskin as a radical thinker, writer, social campaigner, artist, environmentalist, collector and teacher, and on highlighting his legacy to Sheffield and his continuing relevance to us in the twenty-first century. We will share more news ahead of the re-opening.
