Ever popular with members, this tour begins with a general introduction to the history and role of the Government Art Collection and a chance to see a selection of works. We will then be shown the operational side of the organisation: the workshop and the racking area where works of art are made ready for re-selection by ministers of state and ambassadors. Works from the collection are lent for display in major government buildings in the UK and around the world, where they help promote the image of Britain and reflect its culture and creativity in the visual arts.
This event has been organised by a local support group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
