There is still time to visit the brilliant ‘Changing Times: A Century of Modern British Art’ exhibition at The Higgins Bedford before it closes next month.

The exhibition is open until Sunday 16 April 2023 and features almost one hundred paintings, works and sculptures from the 20th century, drawn from The Higgins Bedford’s collection and The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art.

Visitors can enjoy works by some of the biggest names in British art, such as prints and watercolours by David Hockney and Eric Ravilious and large-scale sculptures by Elisabeth Frink.

Over 12,000 people have already visited the exhibition since it opened last October.

“We are very fortunate to have these prestigious artworks on display here in Bedford,” said Cllr Doug McMurdo, portfolio holder for leisure and culture.

“It is fantastic to hear that so many local residents and visitors from further afield have travelled to The Higgins Bedford to view the exhibition.”

More information about the exhibition and the Gallery’s opening times can be found on The Higgins Bedford’s website here.

The Higgins Bedford can be found behind the Castle Mound on Bedford’s Embankment. It unites the three previous venues of Bedford Museum, Bedford Gallery, and the Cecil Higgins Art Gallery.
