ImageOpen Forum: ‘Public Art: Who Cares?’

What is 'public art'? Should it please us or provoke us? Should we get what we like - or what artists think we need?

An expert panel will be debating these issues and more as part of a free panel discussion on Friday 11 September (13.15-14.00) in Gallery 3 of The Fitzwilliam Museum.

Speakers at this Open Forum are:

  • Timothy Potts, Director, The Fitzwilliam Museum
  • Maggi Hambling, Artist
  • Richard Cork, Art critic
  • Helaine Blumenfeld, Sculptor
  • David Wright, Director, Commissions East
  • Councillor Sian Reid, Cambridge City Council
  • Bill Gredley, Chairman of the Unex Group and sponsor of The Fitzwilliam Museum Sculpture Promenade

No booking is required, but places will be allocated on a first-first-come first-served basis.

Part of the University of Cambridge’s Open Cambridge weekend.
