  • Celebrating 200 years of the Fitzwilliam Museum

    The Fitzwilliam Museum turns 200 this year and we’re releasing a short film to celebrate. Lord Fitzwilliam died on the 4th of February 1816, and founded the Fitzwilliam Museum through the bequest to the University of Cambridge of his splendid collection of art, books and manuscripts, along with £100,000 to build the Museum. This generous gift began the story of one of the finest museums in Britain, which now houses over half a million artworks and antiquities.

  • Harvard Art Museums: The Light Machine

    After six years, the Harvard Art Museums will reopen to the public on Nov. 16. The much-anticipated renovation and restoration has united the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum under one spectacular glass roof designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano. Light is a key element of the new design, as is an emphasis on slowing down visitors and connecting them with beautiful works of art in dynamic new ways. The 204,000-square-foot home of the University’s imposing collection includes an expanded art-study center where visitors can request works for examination by appointment, new University galleries where students and faculty will work with curators on projects, and revamped and expanded galleries where fresh juxtapositions of artworks cr...

  • Medieval Friary uncovered at University of Cambridge

    The Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU) are conducting major excavations as part of the University of Cambridge's redevelopment of the New Museums Site. A public Open Day is being held 10am-3pm on Saturday 17 December. Between 1290 and 1538 the site was occupied by an Augustinian Friary. Although work is still at an early stage, numerous impressive discoveries have already been made including the foundations of several large friary structures, ornate architectural details, window glass and decorated tiles which hint at the grandeur of these richly appointed buildings. Medieval burial sites have also been revealed. A number of burials have been identified from within one of the friary structures as well as an exterior cemetery with dozens of individual burials. These burials represent th...

Zoe, James and the learning officers in each museum lead a workshop where the children were able to get to know the collections, choose their favourite objects, create stories about them and draw them. Animator James Baker then took the children’s drawings and stories and used them to create an animation of a boy walking through the Museums with a torch encountering objects like families do at Twilight at the Museums. James was able to capture the different interpretations the children made of the objects and animated their drawings of them to come to life. On the evening of Twilight at the Museums the final animation was projected onto the external walls of each participating Museum using a mobile bike projector run by ADeC.
