    Great day for History of Art at ARTiculation 2018 in Cambridge.

    The History of Art Department recently joined other institutions at the annual ARTiculation Finals event at Clare College, Cambridge. ARTiculation is a public speaking competition for 16-19 year olds, offering a chance for pupils from state and independent schools all around the country to engage with art and architecture in a way which encourages looking, thinking and speaking. Nearly 200 people attended the competition.

    Our department had a stall at the University Fair which received many interested visitors, and Dr Sarah Walford presented a seven-minute taster lecture on the Sèvres ‘Copenhagen Vase’, from the Waddesdon collection.

    Sarah Walford at ARTiculation 2018Sarah Walford - “It was a wonderful opportunity to take an object that our first-year students have studied and to show the many ways in which it can be interpreted. It’s important to show that art history can encompass everything from politics to manufacturing process and science to social history.”

    Sarah Walford has spoken on BBC radio about campaign to save tower of listed Coventry church.

    Dr Sarah Walford has been speaking to Trish Adudu on the BBC Coventry and Warwickshire radio Breakfast Show about the campaign to raise funds for the repair of the bell tower of St Oswald’s Church, Tile Hill. The church is one of a group of three parish churches in Coventry designed by the architect Basil Spence. Sarah was asked about Spence and his architecture, and why the tower is important. It was noted that many Coventrians are unaware that these churches in the Coventry suburbs (also Wood End and Willenhall) were designed by the same architect as the Cathedral, and that the campaign is raising awareness of their significance. The three churches have all been listed for their architectural quality and technical innovation.

    You can find out more about The Life and Work of Sir Basil Spence on our project pages.
