Schools invited to Rodin’s The Kiss exhibition

Published12th December 2018

Ipswich Museums are offering local schools the chance to come along to the stunning Kiss and Tell: Rodin and Suffolk Sculpture exhibition to explore the history of sculpture and the importance of Auguste Rodin’s work.

Curators and artists will be on hand at Christchurch Mansion to discuss Rodin’s iconic The Kiss, one of the world’s top 10 modern sculptures, during these special workshops.

The fortnight of school visits are free, thanks to funding from Arts Council England, and will be available for secondary schools and sixth-form colleges during the week 4th to 7th February and primary schools from 11th to 15th February.

Councillor Carole Jones, the Borough Council’s Museums portfolio-holder, said: “We want to give as many of our young people as possible the chance to see this wonderful exhibition, meet experts, and get a real understanding of the importance of both this exhibition and our other collections.”

Any school that is interested should email museums@ipswich.gov.uk
