The Millennium Wall Hangings have been on temporary display at the High
Street Museum, as most of you will know. That display is about to come to an
end because the Museum will be setting up its delayed exhibition of Ipswich
at War. Commissioned by and owned by the Ipswich Arts Association, Isabel
Clover's wall hangings depicting the history and townscape of Ipswich have
been greatly admired wherever they've been seen.
Clearly they deserve a
permanent home in Ipswich, open to the public. In the interim they may be
displayed at the Manor House Museum in Bury St Edmunds in June-October and
perhaps in Arras from November, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of
cultural exchanges between our two towns.
