Mayor’s Choice Exhibition explores the subject of ‘home’
Press Release: 10/02/2010
This year’s Mayor’s Choice Exhibition has opened at City Space in the Discovery Centre. The theme of this year’s exhibition is place & home.
The exhibition, which runs until 28 February, includes watercolours, photographs, and objects from Winchester City Council’s museum collections.
Each year, the Mayor of Winchester personally selects items from the collection to include in the exhibition. This years Mayor, Cllr Dominic Hiscock decided to focus on items which illustrate the theme of ‘housing’; a subject he feels passionate about.
The pictures, together with objects such as locks, chimney-pots, and keys, help to illustrate aspects of the homes that many of us take for granted.
Cllr Hiscock commented: “Having a roof over your head is considered a basic human need, and yet there are some people who do not have a home.
