Visitors to the Hepworth in Wakefield are being asked to bring in their collections this weekend - however weird and wonderful.
"I Collect", held between 10am and 4pm today and tomorrow, has been inspired by the new David Roberts Collection.
Whether it's stamps, family photos, holiday souvenirs or football scarves - the gallery would love to see what visitors have gathered over the years.
Members of staff have been joining in too. Becky Harlow, Schools Co-ordinator, brought in her Mr Potato Head collection. She said: "I Collect.... Mr Potato Heads, because they remind me of my childhood, I simply love them!"
Other members of staff are showing off collections including anything mushroom-related, Yoshi paraphernalia, and model trains.
YORK Art Gallery is to shut down for more than two years when a £7.6 million re-development gets under way in December.
Some of the gallery’s collections will be loaned to other galleries, including the National Gallery and the Tate. A touring exhibition of 30 paintings will go on show at galleries throughout Yorkshire. The Hepworth Gallery, in Wakefield, is planning two exhibitions of the gallery’s works.
The revamp of the gallery in Exhibition Square, due to finish during Easter 2015, is being partly funded through a £3.5 million grant from the Arts Council Capital Fund, a £2 million private legacy and £500,000 from York City Council.
