York Art Gallery

August 2015

York Art Gallery has re-opened its doors on the 1st August following a 2 year £8M refurbishment. Lustedgreen’s role included creating the two very different new reception areas incorporating shop facilities and the new cafe/restaurant.

The Gallery has now increased its’ display space by 60% which has the allowed an expanded art collection to international standards, and space for the new Centre of Ceramic Art (COCA) galleries.

The two entrances (front and rear) reflect the two very different building styles and uses – the front being the Listed Victorian entrance to the main Art galleries, whilst the rear entrance leads off the new sculpture gardens into the COCA galleries.
