Master of all Trades: The John Ruskin Prize 2017
This summer sees works shortlisted for the John Ruskin Prize 2017 make their debut at the Millennium Gallery. Inspired by the Victorian artist, critic and scholar, the award, established by The Big Draw in collaboration with the Guild of St George, is now in its fourth year.
