Engagement has concluded

This is what we asked you.


The Usher Gallery is getting a refresh, and we would like to hear from you.

Thanks to the Arts Council England, we will be changing the artwork on display in the Usher Gallery. The gallery will undergo a rehang using our rich and vast collection in a new way.

Share with us your ideas on what you would like to see on display at the Usher Gallery, you could even inspire more people to visit.

Have your say and complete the survey below. Or join us at one of our engagement events, to discuss the rehang in further detail.

Share your memories of the Usher Gallery with us on the stories tab, such as:

  • visits to the gallery
  • exhibitions
  • events

Keep an eye on the 'News feed' for more information from the Usher Gallery team too.

The rehang will take place in stages, and the gallery will remain open as normal throughout so visitors can continue to enjoy art for free in Lincoln.

The Usher Gallery is free to enter and open from 10am to 4pm, Thursday to Monday.
