Art Is All Around Us In August

Many members will remember the summer of 2008's Grand Tour, in which reproductions of famous art works were exhibited in prominent locations around our city.  Take a look at this link if you wish to take a look back.

YAS member Julie Lightburn informs us that a similar project is happening on a national scale this summer.  For two weeks in August some of the nation's greatest art will be on display across tens of thousands of billboards up and down the country.  Artists, curators, media owners and entrepreneurs joined by a love of art are fuelling this massive charitable celebration.   Art Everywhere will be the largest exhibition of its kind in the world. 

Go to the website http://arteverywhere.org.uk/about/ and help choose the 50 British masterpieces that will be posted across the country, turning the UK into the world's largest art gallery.

There's lots of ways to get involved, donate or simply enjoy the show.  Follow the links below for more information.
