"Can Art Save Us?" Exhibition in Sheffield

At the Sheffield Millenium Gallery, Brian, Lee, and myself attended the opening of an exhibition with the title "Can Art Save Us?", organised by the Guild of St. George. On display were artworks and artifacts related to John Ruskin. His work in the 19th century centred around art and the negative influence of industrialisation on human civilisation.

A part of the Millenium Gallery is the Ruskin Gallery which is hosting the Ruskin Collection, containing about 900 paintings, watercolors and drawings by artists with some relation to Ruskin, providing "images central to Ruskin's mind".
