Glynn Vivian Art Gallery has reopened following a multi-million pound redevelopment. New spaces for lectures, expert conservation works, touring exhibitions and collection displays are among the improvements visitors can look forward to. A new state-of-the-art extension will link the historic buildings, including the grade two listed 1911 display, which has benefitted from complete restoration and improvements to facilities and access, all of which will ensure the Glynn Vivian is fit for the 21st Century. A new collection store for artworks has also been added, as well as a fully accessible entrance that means more people than ever will enjoy greatly improved access to the artworks. The redevelopment and restoration project has been funded by the Arts Council of Wales, Swansea Council, the Welsh Government, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cadw. Funding was also secured through the Building Enhancement Programme grant scheme run by Swansea Council and funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
