Beastly going-ons at the Dorman Museum

First published in

A NEW exhibition of ‘Beastly Machines’ has opened at Middlesbrough’s Dorman Museum.

It features kinetic sculptures by artist Johnny White and will run throughout the school holidays until Sunday, September 7.

The pieces have been described as “quirky and ingenious” moving artworks which highlight recycling and ecological concerns.

Sculptures include ‘Having a Whale of a Time’, created from welded steel and foam rubber and ‘Canoodling Canoe Gnus’, a 16ft Canadian canoe containing two gnus going for a romantic afternoon paddle.

Dorman Museum curator Gill Moore said: “Beastly Machines is a clever, funny and very, very cheeky exhibition. It has a serious message, but will also amuse the whole family.”

Entry to the museum is free. For more information contact the museum on 01642-813781.
