Derby Museum and Art Gallery

The Strand



In the heart of the city, Derby’s Museum and Art Gallery is home to a fascinating and diverse range of nationally (and internationally) important collections.…

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2022, join our Senior Curator of Art, Lucy Bamford, to discover the story of the little-known 20th Century Derby artist, Marion Adnams. Lucy will explore the museums’ collection of works by Adnams, as well as discussing some of the challenges she faced, and whether such barriers continue to affect the success of women artists working today.

Suitable for adults and young people.
