Live at LICA's object of the fortnight
Tucked away in the Peter Scott Gallery is a vast collection of artworks, artefacts and antiquities. Apart from exhibitions and outreach work there are some aspects of the collection which are rarely seen by the public.
Allow us to introduce our new blog: Object of the Fortnight. Every two weeks our volunteer, Dani Cleeland, will post a new blog entry which highlights a specific object or aspect of our collection.
Before we upload the first blog here's Dani with a little bit about herself:
Hello, my name is Dani. I graduated from Lancaster University in July with a degree in Fine Art. I choose to work mainly in photography and paint, focusing recently on using watercolours and inks.
After graduating, I returned to promote the arts in Lancaster by helping the University to set up the 'Cultural Passport' scheme - one which LICA is part of. I also hosted Culture Corner at Campus Festival where cultural workshops and performances were held to encourage audience participation and engagement with the arts.
Art has been a love of mine for as long as I can remember, and I can't wait to discover the secrets of Live at LICA's art collection.
From the tiniest of vases to works by Picasso, Live at LICA has a world full of treasures hidden away, so keep an eye on this blog for fortnightly bursts of art and history.
