Newest Review: ... about them below. The Ruskin Collection. This is the first exhibition you will come to if you are entering the gallery via the Winter Garden. It is situated in a fairly small room, but it is jam packed with display cases, and offers lots to look at. John Ruskin himself was a Victorian writer who was clearly interested in nature, and this is shown in the artwork on display. There are plenty ... more

As I live close to Sheffield city centre, and since I also have a keen interest in art, I am a regular visit to the Millennium Gallery. The gallery has been open since 2001, and it still looks modern and vibrant today - it definitely brightens up the city centre.

Oddly enough, Sheffield's Millennium Galleries were a Millennium project. Situated on Arundel Gate in the city centre they form a part of the 'Heart of the City' regeneration project. This project has also seen the demolition of the Eggbox (Sheffield's 60s town hall - see http://www.bbc.co.uk/southyorkshire/talk/eggbox.shtml), and has led a friend of mine to say that he doesn't feel like he's in Sheffield when he's in that part of the city. He has lived in Sheffield for all of his life! But I can see what he means as that half of Arundel Gate has a very new and cosmopolitan feel to it. Anyway, to cut a long story as short as I can ...
