Music lovers invited to share favourite lyrics at Rugby gallery

THE MAGIC of song is being celebrated at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum this weekend.

Visitors will be invited to celebrate their favourite songs through a novel ‘hanging mixtape’ on Saturday (September 23).

Inspired by famous lyrics, artist Michaela McMillan has created a series of mini-sculptures featuring lines from songs.

The project links the gallery’s current exhibitions What Do I Need to Do to Make It OK? – which features contemporary crafts exploring the themes of repair and restoration – and Music in Rugby, a celebration of the town’s musical history.

Michaela said: “Visitors to the workshop can use found objects, wire, beads and textiles to assemble a unique mini artwork to interpret a lyric.

“Whatever the influence, from Happy Birthday To You to Handel’s Messiah, you can create a musical masterpiece.”

Join Michaela at a free drop-in session from 1-2pm. Visit for more information.
