Art Unlocked: Jerwood Collection

Art Unlocked is an online event series brought to you by Art UK in collaboration with Bloomberg Philanthropies . Each week, different museum and gallery curators and directors from across the UK will deliver a 30-minute talk on selected works from their collection.
For our latest talk, join Art UK and Lara Wardle, Executive Director of the Jerwood Collection, for an exciting exploration of some notable works from this collection on 11th January 2023, 5:30pm. In this talk you will hear that the Jerwood Collection celebrates its 30-year anniversary in 2023 as the first work, a painting by Sir Frank Brangwyn RA, was bought for the Collection in 1993.
Art Unlocked is delivered over Zoom Webinar and can be accessed via the event page once you have registered. There will be a short Q&A session after the talk.
The talk is free but there is the option to donate to Art UK alongside your ticket. Any donations are much appreciated.
