PORTRAIT SCULPTURE AT THE ASHMOLEAN
LOOKING AT THE OVERLOOKED
An Exclusive Online Talk for Members of the Ashmolean
Booking is required
With Xa Sturgis, Director of the Ashmolean Museum
How many times have you passed by a bust or sculpture of some notable figure linked to the Museum or to our history without a second look?
In this first talk of our Illuminating Insights programme, the Ashmolean's director Dr Xa Sturgis takes us on a journey around the Museum, addressing just this oversight.
Who knows who and what we’ll meet and discover... some of the Chantrey Wall busts and Randolph Sculpture Gallery surprises will be highlighted on the journey.
This is the first talk of our new Illuminating Insights series of monthly talks.
Introducing the Illuminating Insights series
The new Illuminating Insights series of monthly talks, conceived by our Member Events volunteer team, will offer supporters an intimate look behind the scenes of the Museum's collections. Each talk will be led by one of our curators or Museum experts exploring some of the more unusual, little-known Ashmolean treasures, and including a look at current research projects and conservation work. At the end of each talk there will be a Q&A for attendees to exchange views with our experts.
This past event has now taken place.
