GALLERY CHANGES

Monday 20 November - mid-January

We shall be carrying out essential upgrades to our fire alarm system during this period. This means certain paintings will temporarily be removed from the galleries for a number of days. If you are visiting with the intention of seeing a specific work of art, please contact our Assistant Curator Helen Cobby on h.cobby@bham.ac.uk or 0121 414 7350 during office hours.
