Glynn Vivian Art Gallery Redevelopment Project
Glynn Vivian Art Gallery has been planning a major redevelopment project for some years to help conserve the infrastructure of the original 1911 building and to improve access for all.
The project is being funded by a grant from the Welsh Government (£3.5m) in addition to contributions from the Arts Council of Wales (£2m) and the City and County of Swansea (£500K).
This exciting project is extensive and means that the Gallery will be closed to the public for the duration.
Structural work has now begun and the gallery is expected to reopen in autumn 2014. Glynn Vivian Offsite programme will provide activities and events in the interim.
The redeveloped Gallery will offer:
The Gallery continues to present an exciting offsite public programme of exhibitions, working with partners locally, nationally and internationally, and a full programme of activities and events are available at our offsite base at the YMCA, Kingsway, Swansea.
Our successful 4Site education programme continues to take place within schools and our team are preparing programmes for the Gallery reopening.
For information on all of our offsite programmes, please check for updates on our website.
Please direct all further enquiries to Laura Sims, Marketing Officer – Audience Development, on 01792 516900 or Laura.Sims@swansea.gov.uk.
This will be an interesting and exciting time for the Gallery and we hope that with your help, we can continue to develop our work to ensure that the Glynn Vivian continues to thrive for future generations.
Thank you for your continued support.
