Say It Loud : How Posters Talk To Us
1st April – 31st Dec 2018
Drawing from a largely unseen collection, ‘Say it Loud’ is a new exhibition which investigates the techniques and devices used by poster designers. In a space designed to make you think about looking, learn how to discover the messages and meanings within posters and try your hand at creating your own. With examples from professional artists and colliery workers, this exhibition showcases posters designed for use across the mining industry.
A visually powerful, yet playful space with family-friendly activities, this exhibition will be the first time that many of the posters from this collection have been put on public display.
