Join tour guide, Christine for tours: Tales of Acquisition: Gifts to Birmingham Museums (12pm) and The Art of David Cox (2pm).

12pm - Tales of Acquisition: Gifts to Birmingham Museums

As part of Remember a Charity week this special tour explores some of the objects and artworks left to Birmingham Museums by supporters in their Wills or purchased using a legacy. Some of the highlights of Birmingham’s important regional collection were acquired in this way, including the Stanley Sellers collection of studio pottery in recent years, numerous Pre-Raphaelite and Birmingham School pieces, and the significant John Feeney Bequest.
