Welcoming people to the Gallery Oldham collections and stories
Mather & Co were asked to create a new engaging welcome installation in the Gallery Oldham Foyer which acts as a promotion to current exhibition programmes and keeps visitors updated on progress with the new Oldham Museum and Arts. The new installation supports, promotes and works coherently with the existing Library and Learning services and showcases the brand for the first time.
The installation is located at the main entrance to Library and Lifelong Learning Centre (LLC). We had to carefully design the exhibition so that it orientates and informs without distracting or obstructing visitors to other areas of the building. The displays were designed to be as attractive as possible, showcasing a broad range of artefacts, to draw visitors into the stories of the museum collections. It also serves to signpost to the main galleries, exhibitions and events.
This installation is the first phase in the development of the new Oldham Museum and Arts due to open in 2021.
