The Liverpool Art Month is a new initiative aimed at showcasing the city’s artists during the Liverpool Art Prize exhibition.

Liverpool Art Month will bring the city’s artists together in a new series of events and exhibitions that will be spread across a number of exciting and undiscovered locations.  The network of artists and gallery spaces is hoping to attract the region’s art lovers to Liverpool city centre to see the Liverpool Art Prize exhibition alongside the creative emerging talent found in the city’s exciting making spaces.

And there is loads of stuff going on which will make it the richest art month before the Biennial kicks off later this year.
