CELEBRATING THE BICENTENARY OF JOHN RUSKIN’S BIRTH 1819 | 2019
Organisations across the world are celebrating the bicentenary of John Ruskin’s birth throughout 2019 with a series of special events exploring Ruskin’s radical and increasingly relevant ideas on society, culture, politics, environmental issues and everything in between. A true polymath and social justice pioneer, Ruskin’s legacy will be explored through exhibitions, talks, a national art prize, publications and workshops.
Ruskin was a radical polymath who believed drawing was a vital tool in seeing the world more clearly and without whom The Big Draw simply wouldn't exist. Ruskin's own charity, The Guild of George founded The Big Draw (formerly The Campaign for Drawing) in 2000 with Ruskin's value's at the core of everything we do.
