artscouncik.jpg The Arts Council Collection Print Display

Sunderland Museum's new Arts Council Collection Print Display is now open!

Featuring a selection of prints from the Arts Council Collection, each artwork has been hand-picked by a brilliant group of local residents!

The Arts Council Collection is primarily a collection of modern and contemporary British art, but early on in its history it also acquired prints by major 20th-century European artists alongside British artists, forming an outstanding collection of more than 1,500 printed works by over 500 artists.

This is the first in a series of three print displays selected by local community groups from the Arts Council Collection. The display has been chosen by Sunderland's own Art Champions, a fantastic group of people from Sunderland who have been exploring this vast and extraordinary collection.

Featuring artworks by Robert Colquhoun, Jeffery Edwards, Patrick Hayman, Tom McGuinness and Chris Ofili.

5 August – 1 November, Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens.
