Performances and Exhibitions

Illustrated Menagerie: Shakespeare's Animals

An exhibition of work by first year BA (Hons) Illustration students

This is a group exhibition of work by first year BA (Hons) Illustration students at the School of Art and Design. This collaborative piece is the result of 47 first year students who have worked together to create a scroll illustrating the animals of Shakespeare, attempting to instill the illustrations with something of the spirit that Shakespeare intended. The imagery reflects the range of exploration of media and imagery to convey the creatures and is varied as the animals themselves.

29 March - 7 June 2016 9am - 5pm, Monday – Friday, 10am - 2pm Saturday Freda Swain Room, Portsmouth Guildhall

Admission: Free
