The Whitworth Art Gallery
The Whitworth was created to inspire the region's textile industry, give pleasure to Manchester citizens and to instruct students and artists about the visual arts. As a university art gallery, with research collections as well as a year round programme of public activities, we still do all these things. We look after historic and contemporary collections, with a little over 50,000 objects; our collections of works on paper, wallpapers and flat textiles are amongst the finest outside London.
Home to some of the UK's finest, collections of art and design. Including modern and historic fine art, prints, textiles and a rare collection of wallpapers
