The latest in the Art Unlocked series. Join Art UK and the Walker Art Gallery in exploring selected artworks from their collection.

Art Unlocked is a new online event series brought to you by Art UK in collaboration with Bloomberg Philanthropies. Each week, different museum and gallery curators and directors from across the UK will deliver a 30-minute talk on selected works from their collection.

For our latest talk, join Art UK and Sandra Penketh, Executive Director of Galleries and Collections Management at National Museums Liverpool, for an exciting exploration of some notable works from this collection on 19th January 2022, 5:30pm.

Art Unlocked is delivered over Zoom Webinar and can be accessed via the event page once you have registered. There will be a short Q&A session after the talk.

The talk is free but there is the option to donate to the Walker Art Gallery alongside your ticket. Any donations are much appreciated and go towards supporting the UK’s national collection.
