‘Bright Ideas’ Opens for Business!

Last night the museum staff and student-curator’s celebrated the opening of their new exhibit ‘Bright Ideas: The Art and Science of Light’, a result of the MLitt Museum Studies programme.

It was a chance for family, friends and colleagues to visit the exhibit and see what the students had been working on for the last six months.

The impressive lamp display was a big hit!

Attendees had a chance to see the new exhibition and hear more about the objects and stories included from the students. Some visitors even saw their own work on display:

While the exhibition was open for viewing, 90 High Street became party central, with drinks, snacks and a chance to see other photograph competition entries and images of the students over the process of creating their exhibition.

The snack table was popular!

We had a great time at the opening event; hearing what people thought of our exhibit. Though the process of creating the exhibition was long and tough, we loved every minute of it and we hope you can come and see our work soon!
