What a fantastic end to a fantastic year! Huge thank you to MAFA!
'Manchester Academy Fine Arts was founded on 14th November 1859. Originally affiliated to the Royal Manchester Institution on Mosley Street, the Academy continued to be based at the building, now Manchester Art Gallery, after the Institution gifted it to the city council in 1882.
The Academy’s outstanding contributions to the cultural life of the city are well documented: its members designed the Town Hall and the University, and have created murals and public sculptures throughout the city. It was responsible for the only art exhibitions to be staged in Manchester in both world wars. Classes run by academicians have influenced many students, including L.S. Lowry.'
