Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A)
2013 Exhibitions: Light from the Middle East: New Photography (November 13 - April 7)
Supported and funded by the British government as a non-departmental public body, the V&A Museum, named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, is the largest museum of art and design in the world. Geographically covering over 12 acres of land, the museum houses collections from not only every continent, but also has country-specific collections of works. Their artifacts include pieces of architecture, ceramics, fashion, metalwork, jewelry, textiles, furniture, and much more, with each category showing a long history of the works—many dating back to ancient times. To make it through all of their 145 galleries would take you through many periods of art, from Baroque and Rococo to Medieval and Gothic styles.
