A great piece of Graffiti

I’ve mostly been on leave this week, but was at the Gallery today to attend our monthly site progress meeting, and also to give presentations to two groups from the Friends of the Whitworth who have also been on hard hat tours of the site. Our Friends group are working hard to raise a substantial amount of money towards the project fund, specifically towards the fit-out of the Collections Access Area; if you haven’t already seen details of their exciting fundraising Art Auction, then go to: http://artauction.manchesterdda.net/ and get bidding!

Lots of work continues on site and I could tell you today about brick samples and the time and effort going into getting these just right before full brick walls are created, or that window frames are being installed within concrete apertures (I’ll save these for another time!) – but instead I thought I’d share this great piece of graffiti that has recently appeared on the hoardings surrounding the ISG construction site – it speaks for itself.

If you haven’t checked out the Whitworth’s 2013 summer season, then you only have a very short time to do so as the Gallery closes to the public on Sunday 1 September. We celebrate the end of one era and raise a toast to an amazing future with three days of festivities in Whitworth Park – see the full programme of activities at: http://www.whitworth.manchester.ac.uk/whatson/exhibitions/weekending/
