We are re-opening our galleries – The Lowry

WE ARE REOPENING – WEEKENDS FROM 1 NOVEMBER   On display will be the permanent LS Lowry Collection together with a brand new exhibition Days Like These which documents the lockdown experiences of people from Salford in 2020. Days Like These features paintings, photographs, films and poetry contributed by some of the 245,000 residents of the city – from empty Salford streets and the joy of reuniting, to the impact on frontline workers and the challenges of being alone. The exhibition wants to reflect the hopes and fears of everyone, then and now, and after you have seen the exhibition, we hope you contribute too.

Alongside Days Like These is a new display of the best of Salford’s own LS Lowry – an artist known for his paintings of crowded city streets, and vast empty landscapes.

Social distancing measures are in place with a one way system, regular cleaning schedule, temperature checks on arrival and the wearing of face masks is compulsory

Access to the exhibitions will be via timed entry slots so please ensure you book in advance.

Contributions to the exhibition are still welcome – visit: thelowry.com/exhibitions   The exhibition forms part of the Spirit of Salford initiative – a scheme designed to celebrate the unique personality and pioneering spirit of Salford.
