Walls, walls, walls!

Redevelopment work at Pontefract Museum is cracking on and it's all about the walls!

All of the old exhibition structures have been removed, as has the glass partition, leaving the space looking huge...

There were blinds at the windows these have been taken down.  The windows will be decorated with vinyl designs by artist Fabric Lenny, his work can be seen on other windows at the museum.

The old blinds
The glass partition is being replaced with a stud wall. 

The new wall will give us lots of extra display space in both the main gallery and the special exhibition gallery.

The existing gallery walls are being boarded over to provide a solid and plain backing for the new displays.

The museum exhibition team is also working on the interpretation, providing  graphic designers InchPunch with content for the exhibition panels and preparing the objects for display.

Work left to do includes painting the ceiling and new walls, building new display structures and installing new museum cases.

Pontefract Museum will reopen in the spring.  Follow @WFMuseums for updates.
