Millennium GalleriesEdit profile
The Millennium Galleries is an art gallery in the City of Sheffield, England. Opened in April 2001 as part of Sheffield's Heart of the City project, it is located in the city centre close to the city library, Sheffield Hallam University, and the city's theatre district. The gallery is divided into four sections: the Special Exhibition Gallery hosts touring exhibitions from galleries like the Tate Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Craft and Design Gallery shows the work of past and present craftsmen and designers, the Metalwork Gallery is designed to showcase Sheffield's metal industries, and the Ruskin Gallery hosts the collection of the Guild of St George, which was established in Sheffield by John Ruskin in the 19th century. The gallery is connected to another city landmark, the Sheffield Winter Gardens.
