Thrift Radiates Happiness

13th Mar 2013 to 17th Mar 2013

Birmingham's Municipal Bank plays host to a four day contemporary arts exposition.

One of Birmingham's most historic landmark buildings opens its doors to the public for the first time in ten years. From 13-17 March (12-6pm) the former Grade II listed Municipal Bank on Broad Street will showcase a creative programme of drawings, images, sound and light, video and music from local, national and international artists.

The event's title 'Thrift Radiates Happiness' was found inscribed across a main beam within the building. All the art projects featured will appropriately focus on finance and investment.

The showcase event is the result of an arts and business collaboration between Birmingham based gallery TROVE, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the Birmingham Architectural Association (BAA), Birmingham City Council and global architect practice Aedas. Entrance to the exhibition will be free thanks to funding awarded by The Arts Council, RIBA and Aedas.

Purity is supporting the launch event, which takes place on Thursday 14 March.
