You have one last chance to catch a weekend of endless art at the Manchester School of Art Degree Show 2017. The multi-exhibition visual feast sees gallery spaces across Manchester Metropolitan University transformed by over 1000 graduating artists and designers. Whatever your taste, with so much to see for free, you’re bound to find something that inspires. From colourful collages to playful plastics, the disciplines on display cover architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, filmmaking, typography and sculpture. You may even spot a star of the future – Manchester School of Art alumni include Routemaster bus designer Thomas Heatherwick, photojournalist Martin Parr and Danger Mouse creator Brian Cosgrove. And look out for the bright and bold “YOU MADE IT” slogan made by DR.ME, a Manchester-based design studio that has previously worked with Manchester International Festival. The closing day (Wed 21 Jun) is also Manchester Metropolitan University’s open day, so take time to explore what the campus has to offer. The exhibition is split across the university’s Benzie, Grosvenor and Chatham buildings, with plenty of signage to help you find what you’re after. And throughout the open day at the Degree Show, graduates will be on hand to talk all things arty.
