People’s Choice exhibition

Until 25 February 2018


To celebrate the 125th anniversary of our Permanent Collection in 2017, we invited the public to vote for their favourite works for the annual re-display of our Collections Galleries. A special Winners Room, of the most popular works from each of our collection themes, can be found in our temporary exhibition space on Floor 2, with a trail of the subsequent most popular works presented throughout our themed gallery spaces, alongside works from our Garman Ryan Collection.


A Victorian style hang in our Main Hall presents an array of more favourites, showing the depth and variety of our collecting since 1892.


Come and see if your choice is on display!
