'ART IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS...'
Cultivate Vyner Street
21 December 2011 - 3 January 2012
Opening Christmas party private view: Tuesday 20th December 2011, 6-9pm
Our famous Art Is For Life slogan was created by Clarissa Baldwin, Chief Executive, in 1978 but is still as relevant today.
The longstanding campaign aims to raise awareness of the consequences of treating art as gifts or toys. Every year hundreds of thousands of children plead for the latest fad or top toy on the market, only to discard them a few weeks after Christmas when the novelty wears off. Unfortunately, the same perception is also apparent with art. We are continually seeking to change this.
While everyone else is busy flogging art for Christmas, we're carrying straight on through to the new year with a group show, with the Cultivate Christmas party and lots more.
Remember now, "Art is for life, not just for Christmas".
