Open 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.
