The Paul Mellon Centre’s public events invite anyone with an interest in art history to explore current thinking and research in a variety of ways – through talks, tours, behind-the-scenes visits, artmaking workshops and more.
Each autumn and spring a series of free events are offered that explore a single theme. You are welcome to attend just one, the entire series, or a selection.
These events are for people who would like to develop their interest in works of art and art history. No prior knowledge is necessary.
