Come and join us at the new Firstsite exhibition

Jun 3, 2024 | Art, Featured

We are very excited to share the news that one of our Level Best Trainees Henry Linstead will have a piece of his work featured in the upcoming exhibition at Firstsite!

The stellar new exhibition Lunar Lullabies is a galactic journey through 200 years of space exploration, showcasing stunning artworks which explore space and science, alongside historical artefacts and contemporary pop culture nods.

Explore objects ranging from meteorites and asteroid rocks to Lego Star Wars sets up close, discover all about humanity’s ‘giant leap’ to the moon and get lost in Peter Elson’s fantastical visions of space.

To celebrate the launch of this inspiring show, Firstsite is hosting an open day on the first day of the exhibition which is open to all local families, creatives and anyone that wants to be a part of the fun! There will be activities running all day, such as creating extra-terrestrial clay creatures and sun gazing through a specialist telescope. During the exhibition, families will have the opportunity to bring their own cosmic creations to life, transforming the gallery into an immersive playscape of imagination and discovery.
