Milton Keynes Gallery opened in October 1999 - the first new-built public art Gallery in England in over 20 years. In its first 15 years it has established itself within the city and beyond as an important addition to the British contemporary art network. On average there are 4-5 exhibitions a year in the main gallery, with a monthly, changing community programme in the adjacent Project Space. These exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive programme of regular, weekly, public events for adults and children, and a diverse formal and informal learning programme, aiming to make contemporary visual culture accessible to everyone.
