Three Cambridge exhibitions and events to visit in March 2013

There's so much going on in Cambridge in March: the many arty events at the Science Festival will keep you busy for days!  Still, you may have time to squeeze in one or two other things so here's my list of the top three for March:  

1. Fitzwilliam Sculpture Promenade

Last chance to see this fabulous display of large outdoor sculpture! With the weather becoming a little sunnier, this promises to be a lovely outing.  Don't forget to touch them (you're allowed).  Includes Cambridge based sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld, British sculptor Peter Randall-Page, and Japanese sculptor Kan Yasuda.

Where:  Lawn in front of the Fitzwilliam Museum.
When:  Tues-Sat 10-5, Sun 12-5.  Ends Sun 31 March.
All welcome.  Free.

2. Heterotopia, Part Two

I saw Part One of this student exhibition, and it included some really intriguing and interesting works of art.  So I have confident hopes for Part Two.  It's always fun to support art students!  For a list of artists taking part, check out the students' blog.

Who:  Third-year Fine Art students at the Cambridge School of Art.
Where: Anglia Ruskin University, Ruskin Gallery Corridor, Ruskin Building. (Map).
When:  Thurs 21 March - Fri 19 April.  Private view:  Thurs, 21 March, 5 pm.
All welcome.  Free.

3. The Lansdowne Relief and the Longue Durée of Maritime Entanglements

Join Professor James Whitley of Cardiff University for a lunch-time talk on the Lansdowne Relief.  Afterwards, wander into the galleries to look at this limestone frieze that once decorated a room in Emperor Hadrian's villa in Tivoli (near Rome).  Should provide a tantalising glimpse into the past!

Who: Professor James Whitley (Cardiff University).
Where:  Fitzwilliam Museum.
When:  Wed 13 March 2013, 1.15-2 pm.  Entry by free token from 12.45.
All welcome.  Free.
