Art Everywhere……

I love the idea behind this – for two weeks in August some of the nations greatest art works will be displayed on billboards around the country.  I’m glad to see that 3 pieces from the Walker Art Gallery’s collection are included in the short list.  It will be interesting to see what the great British public choose to be the 50 top art works to go on display.

At the time of writing this post

Blotter by Peter Doig is on 402

Elizabeth I (1533–1603): The Pelican Portrait by Nicholas Hilliard is on 233

and Snowdon from Llyn Nantlle by Richard Wilson is on 132.
