Upcoming events taking place outdoors at the Whitworth will be listed on this page.
Worldwide Call for Action to Remember Nature
Saturday 18 November 1pm-3pm
Join local artist Phil Barton as he reprises Gustav Metzger's November 2015 ‘Worldwide Call to Remember Nature’. Metzger, inventor of 'auto-destructive art', died earlier this year and the remains of his 'Flailing Trees' can be found in Whitworth Park. Phil will speak about Metzger's life and work, make part of his own work 'Out of sight, Out of mind’ and invite you to explore Nature in the Gallery and Park for yourselves.
