Titanic exhibition and film arrives at Shipwreck Museum
Titanic art, film, animations with original commissioned music by Josh Cummins will be showcased in The Amsterdam Gallery by the Shipwreck Museum in Hastings from tomorrow (Saturday).
A special workshop for children will be held on December 21 when children will have the opportunity to make a stained glass Titanic piece of art with Bonny and a phenakistoscope animation, a 20th century animation toy, forerunner of the zoetrope, a toy used in 1912.
Please book places via the museum. Ages 7+
Bonny Cummins’ friendship with Millvina Dean, the last survivor of Titanic, who passed away in May 2009 ,inspired this installation and tour entitled Titanic Hidden Histories, which is funded by Arts Council England.
Bonny is looking for any local Hastings, Rother and Sussex connections to Titanic and would love anyone who has any link or story to get in touch with her on [email protected] or call the Museum on 01424 437452.
Bonny’s exhibition started in Cobh, formerly Queenstown in April 2012 and has toured to Brighton Town Hall during Brighton Festival where she raised awareness and funds for the new essential RNLI lifejackets.
The exhibition then moved to Southampton Library and is currently in the Isle of Wight Library and Maritime museum at Cowes and will end the year in Hastings at the Shipwreck Museum.
This exhibition is sponsored by the Arts Council England.
