The exhibition opens at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady on 1stDecember with many of the pieces bequeathed or donated to Council and created by acclaimed artists associated with the borough.
Alderman Michelle Knight McQuillan, Chair of Council’s NI 100 Working Group added: “I visited the exhibition when it first opened in Flowerfield Arts Centre back in August and I was hugely impressed by the pieces on display which help to tell the story of our Borough.
“It is a great opportunity for the public to view some of the significant items held within our arts and museum collections and recognise their value as tangible expressions of Causeway Coast and Glens’ history over the past 100 years.”
Alongside the exhibition there will be a creative learning programme suitable for all ages to participate in.
