Harvest Jazz & Blues Scavenger Hunt: To celebrate 28 years of Harvest, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery is hosting a visual scavenger hunt that brings together art and music through vinyl record sleeves. These aren’t just any record covers, though; these ones feature artworks by some of the world’s greatest artists.
September 8- 17: Visit during Harvest Jazz & Blues festival and ask our front desk staff about how you could win a prize!
Curator Crunch: Join Manager of Collections and Exhibitions John Leroux each month for an exciting, intimate, and fast-paced look at artworks on display. Designed to comfortably fit in your lunch break, these short presentations on artistic treasures are open to everyone. See what these artworks say, and how they connect us with the world – how’s that for “food for thought”?
Sept 12: 12:15- 12:50 pm, Molinari’s Abstract Marvel in Venice
