Less than a month to go until the Highbury Heritage Open Day!

Join us on the 15th September from 11am – 4pm!

2019 is the bicentenary of the visionary art critic, writer, artist and social reformer John Ruskin. To mark this landmark year, numerous organisations are presenting Ruskin exhibitions, displays and conferences. We’re delighted to celebrate the legacy of Ruskin and will open Highbury’s doors as part of Heritage Open Days and Birmingham Heritage Week. 

Highlights include:

  • ‘Art after Nature’ – a Birmingham School of Art ‘Ruskin-themed’ exhibition 
  • Guided tours of the house and grounds 
  • Mr Chamberlain’s Orchids: an Art and Science Project (drop in workshops and demonstrations)
  • Ruskin inspired artwork by Franziska Schenk
  • Ruskin cartoons by Hunt Emerson
  • Historic bicycle display 

AND MORE! Free event. Family friendly.
