There is still time to visit the brilliant ‘Changing Times: A Century of Modern British Art’ exhibition at The Higgins Bedford.
The exhibition is open until Sunday 16 April 2023. Almost one hundred paintings, works and sculptures from the 20th century are featured. Works come from The Higgins Bedford’s collection and The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art.
Visitors can enjoy works by some of the biggest names in British art, such as prints and watercolours by David Hockney and Eric Ravilious and large scale sculptures by Elisabeth Frink.
The Higgins Bedford has welcomed over twelve thousand visitors since the exhibition opened in October 2022. Entry to ‘Changing Times: A Century of Modern British Art’ is free.
Councillor Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said, “We are very fortunate to have these prestigious artworks on display here in Bedford. It is fantastic to hear that so many local residents and visitors from further afield have travelled to The Higgins Bedford to view the exhibition.”
More information about the exhibition and the Gallery’s opening times can be found on The Higgins Bedford’s website at www.thehigginsbedford.org.uk.
The Higgins Bedford can be found behind the Castle Mound on Bedford’s Embankment. It unites the three previous venues of Bedford Museum, Bedford Gallery, and the Cecil Higgins Art Gallery.
