Still glowing from last year’s Field of Light installation at the Holburne Museum, this winter Bruce returns to Bath to help celebrate the RUH 80th Birthday and the forthcoming Cancer Care Centre with an original light installation entitled Brass Monkey.
The Bruce Munro sculpture coincides with the Bath Galleries Group Art Affair. As the official charity partner for the Bath Galleries Group, following on from last year’s highly successful Art Auction, Art at the Heart of the RUH is raising funds for its Artsparks children’s ward project by hosting a high quality raffle.
Programming and managing Artsparks requires a tremendous commitment and brings a series of regular creative workshops in response to different themes throughout the year. Feedback received shows that it makes a positive difference to the lives of over 200 children, parents and staff a year, who have come to depend on these workshops as a form of distraction therapy, engaging families in a positive and constructive way.
Prizes include works of art up to the value of £3000, by artists represented by Art at the Heart and the Bath Galleries such as Nick Cudworth, Judy Rodrigues and Bruce Munro. A special signed piece of art by Stanley Donwood, who is known for producing the artwork for Radiohead Album covers, is also up for grabs!
Individual raffle tickets will be sold for £20. To maintain the prestige and quality associated with the 2012 Art at the Heart Raffle only 1000 tickets will be printed and will be available from the Bath Galleries and Royal United Hospital throughout the Bath Art Affair.
