Events at the Fitzwilliam Museum
The exhibitions "Things of beauty growing" and "Flux:Parian Unpacked" are on at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge until mid-June. There are a number of associated events - study days and talks - and some of them still have space. The exhibitions are definitely a must see, and the talks from some of the makers and curators will be fascinating.
These are the events:
A study day (Monday 30 April) linked to Matt Smith's installation Flux: Parian Unpacked, which is selling out fast: http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/calendar/whatson/museum-not-neutral
