“The Body in Art”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

I'm afraid this exhibition was rather disappointing! It was a wet Monday but the place seemed lifeless and rather uncomfortable with itself. The exhibition really was an uninspired trip through works mainly available at Birmingham M & A Gallery. Some of the works are excellent and are always worth seeing many by well recognised and excellent artists but the exhibit didn't bring together a real analysis of "the body in art" ... more a title to allow these works to be grouped together rather than answer a question!

“Such an interesting and friendly place.”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Local interest museum with world wide appeal. We only had time to do half of it as it closes at 4pm so we will definitely be back to do the rest.

“A lovely, lovely visit”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

My niece worked there and it is full of interesting things for one and all. I think if you visit Coventry to say see the Cathedral, with this just being down the road it is well worth a visit. The diversity of Arts are wonderful, plus you can have tea, coffee , eats in there or there are numerous places around to have a coffee and lunch

“Always exciting”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Herbert Art Gallery is one of those places where you can go a hundred times and still not get bored of it.
I have visited Herbert's since I was in primary school and I still love it to this day.
