During this time of self-isolation, social distancing and home schooling the council’s Wolverhampton Arts and Culture team have made available a range of ideas for creative activities and ways to stay connected with arts and culture.
By visiting the website visitors can take a virtual tour of the Art Gallery, locating their favourite pieces and even sharing them online using #wolverhamptonartcollection.
Wolverhampton Arts and Culture has over 18,000 items in its collection, which range from objects relating to Black Country history and ancient fossils, to old master paintings and contemporary sculptures. We also have the biggest collection of Pop Art outside of London.
A vast number of items are available to view online by clicking the Collections tab on our website. It’s a wonderful resource for learning, engagement and creativity.
Our curators have compiled a list of informative books available on Issuu, which relate to artists and artworks in our collections, as well as to our exhibitions.
There’s a carefully selected list of podcasts which document what is currently going on in the arts and discuss recently opened exhibitions and burning topics in the art world.
Beyond viral videos, tutorials and music, YouTube has many great channels where you can learn about art. We’ve selected five YouTube channels covering latest exhibitions and art events as well as those that explore art and art history through the lens of things happening today.
