The University of Bolton School of the Arts are delighted to announce that they will be holding their prestigious Commemorative Exhibition this September in the stunning, newly refurbished Bolton Museum Temporary Exhibitions Gallery. This is the launch event for the Gallery and a chance for the School of the Arts to celebrate the remarkable achievements of graduates, staff and students over the past 150 years.
The exhibition will cover a wide range of historic and current works, alongside information about the University and town, demonstrating how the School of the Arts has altered and developed over the decades in response to the changes in Bolton’s economy and community. From its earliest beginnings to the present day, the School of the Arts has served and enriched Bolton’s community, providing inspiration, skills and knowledge to generations of aspirational designers and artists.
Artists invited to take part in this exhibition have been carefully selected as distinctive and talented creative practitioners who have gone on to achieve significantly in their field. Bolton School of the Arts has produced a host of successful alumni over the years that have been taught and encouraged by skilled and dedicated academic and technical staff. Their achievements together have had significant impact on the Arts and the Creative and Digital Industries in the town, the region, the country and the world.
We intend to utilise the exhibition as a way of engaging new students with the School and University community; as a vehicle for recruitment as we invite groups from colleges to find out more about the wider University Arts (Creative and Digital) offer; and as a research project.
The exhibition runs from the 22nd September to the 31st December but we would be most appreciative if you and your colleagues were able to attend the preview evening on the 28th September. We would also very much like to invite other significant supporters of the University given that this is an important exhibition for the University and the town of Bolton.
