Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.
The Royal Academy celebrated their 250th anniversary in 2018. As part of RA250, institutions around the country are joining in with their celebrations, including the Fitzwilliam Museum. Together we identified seven Royal Academicians who have connections with Cambridge and the Fitz: Eileen Cooper RA, Stephen Chambers RA, Anne Desmet RA, Antony Gormley RA, Nigel Hall RA, Mali Morris RA and Eric Parry RA. We asked each of them to select works from the Fitzwilliam collection which they find inspiring, and to share why.
