Art & Architecture in Middlesbrough
Leaving by coach from the Vue Cinema, Clifton Moor (9.15am), after a Thirsk pick-up (10am) we will travel to the Dorman Museum, Middlesborough, where we will have coffee and the opportunity to see some Art Funded acquisitions, including the noted Linthorpe Pottery Collection.
We will then go by coach to mima (Middlesborough Institute of Modern Art). We will have a guided tour of the current exhibition and also see the vast great grey pot, bought by The Art Fund for £25,263 as part of The Art Fund Collect project. Mima has also been awarded £1 million by The Art Fund as part of its new scheme, Art Fund International. After a buffet lunch in mima we will have a private guided tour of the adjacent magnificent Victorian Town Hall.
