Vote for Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery


Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery is taking part in the Museums at Night competition to win a visit from a contemporary artist.

It is in the running to receive a visit from Susan Stockwell who creates installations, drawings and films commenting on globalisation and colonisation, often using recycled materials.

If Blackburn wins, Susan will create a unique piece of art based on the museum’s collection, which includes pieces from all over the globe acquired when the town was at the heart of the industrial revolution.

The Museums at Night is an annual after hours celebration when hundreds of museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites open their doors for special evening events. It runs from Friday, May 18 until Sunday, May 20.

It is aimed at encouraging visitors into museums, galleries and heritage sites by putting on special evening events.

It is funded by Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
