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
