Historic Exhibition at Broadway Museum & Art Gallery

Broadway Museum Published Tuesday, 12th June 2018

Broadway Museum & Art Gallery is hosting the main exhibition of the Broadway Arts Festival.

The exhibition titled ' Art of the Great War 1914-1918' has been curated by John Noott.

It offers a fascinating first-hand insight into one of the most significant events in modern world history.

Councillor Liz Eyre from Worcestershire County Council & Vice Chairperson of Broadway Museum and Art Gallery said: "Broadway Museum & Art Gallery is a fantastic community museum run by volunteers in partnership with the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. We are delighted and honoured to be hosting such a significant exhibition.

"Art of the Great War showcases the humour as well as the horror, on the front line and the home front. In a time when the last surviving veterans are no longer with us, it offers us a fascinating first-hand insight into one of the most significant events in modern world history."

Mr Noott was born in 1932. His passion for the Great War lead him to gather together an important collection of war art, during his 50 years as an art dealer.

This exhibition is a curated mix of original art and prints, by both official war artists and amateurs.

The exhibition is now on at the Broadway Museum & Art Gallery until September 12, 2018.

The Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday (closed on Sunday and Monday) between 10am and 5pm. Standard museum admission charges are £5 per adult or £10 per family.
