Whitworth Art Gallery is one of the city's oldest art institutions. Located in Whitworth Park which is in the south of Manchester, the gallery has belonged to the University of Manchester since 1958. Its first building was completed fifty years prior, in 1908, and in 2015 it went under a huge refurbishment, funded by the government. That very same year, the gallery was awarded the ‘Museum of the Year’ prize. Some of the artists whose pieces are housed in the gallery are David Hockney, Pablo Picasso, and even Vincent Van Gogh. And that’s just scraping the barrel of the incredible collection the Whitworth has to offer its some 440,000 visitors.
