Talk and Tour: Ashmolean Museum
- Ashmolean Museum |
This great museum is currently shortlisted for the prestigious Art Fund Prize, for the recently opened new galleries following a multi-million pound redevelopment. Tim Wilson, Keeper of Western Art at the Museum, will talk about '20 Years of the Art Fund at the Ashmolean', illustrating the amazing diversity of objects acquired with the help of the Art Fund over this period -from paintings and sculpture to textiles, ceramics and silver. Guides will then lead a tour to look at these acquisitions, now largely displayed in the exciting new galleries.
