We are delighted to have been able to work with artist @peterrcoffin on this new work, which can be seen in the lift at Kettle's Yard. The print replicates the iconic ‘show print’ designs of the Colby Poster Printing Co in LA and celebrates the optimism of live music performance. Don't save the date though, this is a fictional concert and line up of bands and philosophers, all associated with Cambridge. The print is available to buy from @kettlesyardshop and online: a limited edition lithograph of 100, £100 (unframed) £190 (framed). #PeterCoffin #KatrinaAndTheWaves #PinkFloyd

Barkcloth, known as ‘tapa’ has been produced throughout the Pacific Islands for millennia. This example from the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology originated from Fiji, where tapa is recognisable for its geometric designs. See it at #KettlesYard as part of our #ArtistUnknownUCM exhibition. Want to find out more? Join us tomorrow, Saturday 13 July at 2.15pm for a short talk about the exhibition with co-curator @eliza_spindel. @camunivmuseums #Barkcloth #Tapa #PacificIslands
