Our Green Stories Tours: Our Green Artists
CURATOR-LED TOURS OF THE MERL GALLERIES
In our new series of these popular gallery tours, Curator of MERL Collections, Dr Ollie Douglas, will be joined by a different specialist for each of these tours. Together they will take visitors on a short conversational trip around the museum site, exploring our collections, and sharing Green Stories about environment, climate action, social justice, and the life and future of the planet.
Each tour will last about 45 minutes and will culminate in a pop-up display or an opportunity to peek behind the scenes. At the end of the session there’ll be a chance to ask questions and to chat with Ollie and his guest.
Tuesday 14th November – ‘Our Green Artists’
Ollie will be joined by Dr Hannah Lyons, Curator of the University of Reading Art Collections. This special ‘Our Green Artists’ tour will take a deep dive into landscapes, nature studies, and different forms of work on environmental themes, whether in The MERL, or part of the wider Art Collections of the University.
