Celebrate World Art Day

£5 members, £10 non-members

Are you an art lover? Or do you just want to see more art exhibitions? Then don’t miss this arty social event we’ve planned ahead of World Art Day!

World Art Day falls on 15th April, THE DAY AFTER THIS GET-TOGETHER. World Art Day is in honour of Leonardo da Vinci’s birth date – the day was chosen as a symbol for art’s importance to several fields, such as world peace and freedom of expression.

Make Who London friends through art with a self-tour of Tate Britain’s Walk Through British Art display. We’ll arrange a meeting place for Who Londoners in a cafe/pub nearby so you can get to know each other beforehand. Then you’ll all be able to explore British Artists’ work from 1545, decade by decade up until the present day.

Your ticket is for our organisation and for bringing your group together, and we have a Who London Host for this event who looks forward to welcoming you. The exhibition itself is free.

Take a wander through history, to name just a few eras: the 1730-1760 decades where you’ll see a self-portrait by Hogarth, the Victorian Exhibition Gallery 1840-1890, artwork during the 1890-1900 when the Tate itself was founded, and 1940-1950 paintings responding to WWII.

Compare the colours, the styles and the subject matter and decide which decade of British art appeals to you most. Then choose your favourite painting – you may find a souvenir of it in the shop at the end of your visit!
