Alternative Letchworth: Past and Present

3 Dec 2016 – 19 Feb 2017

Created in collaboration with the Garden City Collection, this exhibition shone a spotlight on the early pioneers of the Garden City and their radical beliefs and lifestyles, many of which have become increasingly mainstream.

The exhibition brought together a variety of unique objects from the Collection including photographs, costumes, texts and art, alongside new, specially commissioned works by local artists Chantelle Stephenson, Richard Seaholme, Sean Pearce and John Vincent, and writer Jane Fae.
