Exhibition Opening Report


A great turn out for the opening at National Museum Wales

The  Future Animals exhibition had its official opening at National Museum Wales last Tuesday, 29th March.

All of the organisers were delighted with the turn out.

The morning began with an outline of the project and its achievements, some praise for all of the young designers and a few words of thanks from Ciara, Paul and Jacqui. We then had a chance to view the Future Animals film on the giant projector screen (Paul couldn’t help noticing the fact that the racing tortoise grew to the size of race horse – well scary!) before coffee and cakes in the museum restaurant.

After refreshments there was a chance to spend some quality time with the exhibition …

… before the students split into two groups and got a chance to compare their own creations with the work of international artists in the prestigious Artes Mundi exhibition that is currently on at NMW.

We all had a thoroughly enjoyable day, and we felt that it was a very fitting conclusion (for now at least) to this remarkable project.

Thanks for reading this blog and for taking part in Future Animals.

Ciara, Jacqui, Mike and Paul

    The exhibition was brilliant! Love the set-up of it all, looks really great! Love the video as well (mainly because I’m not in it!) It’s amazing to have a piece of art in the national museum and i’ve been bragging just a little! 🙂 Thanks again
