Children's art detective activity for Lucky charm

2 leather gloves forming a rabbit

Event Details

Put your detective skills to the test with new clues hidden in our exhibition. Solve the clues and collect your limited edition Lucky charm exhibition badge. There’s one to collect for every exhibition. This is a fun, free, activity for the whole family. Suitable for children from 3 years.

The concept of a lucky charm has a potency that has endured across cultures, religions and timespans. Lucky charm brings together eight contemporary artists from differing cultural backgrounds who explore the intangible and irrational magic that gives objects their perceived power. 

Artists Sai-Wai Foo and Vipoo Srivilasa also invite visitors to unleash their creativity in the extravagantly adorned Luck Hall at Bayside Gallery. Make your own ‘wish’ charm to be displayed on a painted ‘wishing tree’ as part of the Lucky charm exhibition. This activity is available throughout the exhibition and no bookings are required.

Exhibition on display from 22 November 2018 – 3 February 2019.

Please note that the Bayside Gallery is closed from 22 December 2018 and reopens on Wednesday 16 January 2019.
