Since summer 2019 we’ve been asking visitors and school groups which artworks in the Ferens collections are their favourites. They told us how they make them feel, what they like about them and what they mean to them. The result is an exhibition that has given children, young people and adults in our city a voice which has not only shaped the exhibition, but how we see the Ferens Art Gallery’s collection.
The exhibition is a chance to see favourite works from the collection, like Rosa Bonheur’s The Lions at Home, Joseph Noel Paton’s The Man With The Muck Rake and Peter Wilson’s Believe Me, I Know Best, with text labels and drawings by the people of Hull.
Free entry * Last entry 30 minutes before closing time.
