The Royal Academy is celebrating their 250th anniversary in 2018. As part of RA250 institutions around the country are joining in with their celebrations, including the Fitzwilliam Museum. Together we identified seven Royal Academicians who have connections with Cambridge and the Fitz: Eileen Cooper RA, Stephen Chambers RA, Anne Desmet RA, Antony Gormley RA, Nigel Hall RA, Mali Morris RA and Eric Parry RA. We asked each of them to select works from the Fitzwilliam collection, which they find inspiring, and to share why.

See selected works in the galleries throughout the year with special interpretation, and pick up a commemorative leaflet (available from both entrances). Blog posts on the RA250 project, including those by artists, will also be published throughout the year. Current posts available to read below:
