Coming Soon……A Question of Taste
Is there a work of art in the University collections you love or hate?  It might be hanging in your department or you may have seen it in the VG&M. Now is your chance to nominate a work for a forthcoming exhibition and write your own label.
Pick an artwork from the University collection and write your own gallery label.  Tell us why you like or dislike the artwork; how it makes you feel; suggest an alternative title; discuss the story being told…….what you write is up to you!
Visit this webpage to get the label template and for further details.
