02/04/12 - Never Without Art
Who's shortlisted for this year's Art Fund Prize?
If there’s one thing that every person who enjoys visiting art galleries and exhibitions should own, it’s a National Art Pass.
Created and supplied by the Art Fund (one of Yucca’s clients) this attractive little card is your pass to over 200 museums, galleries and historic properties in the UK.
The Art Fund has saved more than 860,000 works of art for UK museums and galleries across the country to date and continues to work tirelessly to ensure that great works of art remain where they belong, accessible to the public.
Every year they also host The Art Fund Prize where museums and galleries have the opportunity to be recognised for their work. The winning venue is awarded £100,000 based on its originality and excellence and this year Bristol’s very own MShed has made it on to the long list.
Not that we’re biased or anything but the MShed is a definite contender; we got to watch its conception from the sky-high windows of our old offices and have seen it blossom into a pretty magnificent venue.
The MShed has kept all of its unique character and charm, with the huge dock sheds and four functioning cranes towering outside on the waterfront, yet once you stroll through those imposing doors you enter a sleek and modern gallery with three key sections called People, Place and Life - all filled with lots of treasures from Bristol’s colourful and fascinating past. The venue also provides a great space for hosting an array of events and exhibitions.
If you’re passing through Bristol and happen to have an Art Pass this is definitely a venue to visit (although all of the museums on the long list are certainly worthy of the prize). If you don’t have an Art Pass yet – what are you waiting for?
