A brand new visual arts trail will light up Woodhorn Museum to celebrate the arrival of the Lindisfarne Gospels in the North East this autumn.
Illuminated Sheep by Deepa Mann-Kler is inspired by the Gospels’ themes of light, sheep and pilgrimage, and will see a flock of life-sized sheep lit up in bright colours at some of the region’s most iconic locations including Bamburgh Castle, Vindolanda
and Woodhorn Museum.
We are delighted to be hosting the Illuminated Sheep flock at Woodhorn Museum. You can see the full flock lit up here on Friday 14th – Sunday 16th October.
The sheep will be illuminated as the sun sets at Woodhorn Museum (approximately 6.10pm) and the museum will stay open late until 8pm to see the stunning light installation.
Keep your eyes peeled as you explore the museum. One of our sheep has been separated from the flock and is lost in the museum. Please help us find it.
