We could do with more of this sort of thing, There’s so much good art hidden away in offices, boardrooms, lecture theatres etc. etc. Shame its only here for a week, finishes on Friday 26th. A small but interesting exhibition in the reception area of the Plaza, mostly North West artists I think. The Plaza is the building that housed all the John Moores, Littlewoods offices and you can see the Moores Brothers outside having moved there whilst Church St. is being refurbished.
Had a nice but expensive cup of coffee in the bar at the Radisson across the road too.
