Derby Riverlights to host Uni art exhibition

Talented second year fine art students from Bondholder the University of Derby will be exhibiting their work, titled Archive 32, to the public from 21st-28th May at Bondholder Derby Riverlights' The Boulevard.

The collaboration between the University and Derby Riverlights allows the 32 students to make connections with the public, businesses and organisations beyond the University campus and gives them more opportunities for professional practice and new experiences in the city.

Caroline Locke, Senior Lecturer at University of Derby, said: "The retail unit we are occupying at Derby Riverlights is a vast and impressive space which will allow us to be more adventurous when we create the show. We are pleased Derby Riverlights is supporting us and being so accommodating."

Moorfield Group acquired Derby Riverlights on behalf of Moorfield Real Estate Fund III (MREFIII) in May 2015 and intend to ensure the area becomes a key leisure destination in Derby city centre.

Nic Lowry, Asset Manager at Moorfield Group said: "We are thrilled to be working with the second year Fine Art students and look forward to welcoming all to Derby Riverlights. We wanted to help by giving space to this event and it's been great to make this happen in the heart of the city centre with the University."
