There is also a chance to take part in raffle to win a limited edition Anish Kapoor print. Click here to enter. Raffle closes at 11.59pm on 4 November 2020.

Artists for Pitzhanger will raise funds to help Pitzhanger’s recovery at this time of need, supporting its recent reopening and future learning and outreach programmes.

When Pitzhanger closed in response to the Covid-19 situation in March, it lost all of its admissions and commercial income essential to keep Pitzhanger open, and to support its exhibitions programme and learning and outreach activities. Even now it has reopened, social distancing measures mean that oits income will remain well below a sustainable level this year.

Artists for Pitzhanger is one of the key ways for it to raise funds to help us continue to deliver its mission to engage and inspire, with art, architecture and design.

More details about the sale are on the Pitzhanger web site.
