Art on show in Brighton & Hove and Sussex
Into the Blue
6 July 2013 – August 2014
Hove Museum & Art Gallery
This family friendly exhibition of all things blue, from the collections of the Royal Pavilion & Museums, is a journey of discovery in science, art and history. Using the blue objects as a starting point the exhibits lead to the discovery of some fascinating facts and the investigation of some intriguing questions.
Start with a collection of blue minerals to find out about pigment and paint through the ages and which shade exactly was called ‘the diamond of pigments’. Explore the evolutionary story of birds, bugs and mammals to discover how creatures see in colour and which colours they see. How does blue feature in decoration, both for humans and animals? Why is the sky blue? And which creature amongst us all has the best eyesight?
