Twycross Gallery is an accessible commercial space for contemporary art in the local area, providing a huge selection of paintings, limited edition prints, sculpture, ceramics, glass and jewellery.

The Zoo has developed a strategy to bring high quality art to the site as an interpretive and interactive medium. It is the Zoo's intention for the strategy to aid both in the site's audience development and cultural impact, while also increasing access to the arts in the East Midlands area. Using high quality contemporary art we want to provoke curiosity and engage people with the living world in a direct, emotional and visceral way.
