We found the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts last year when visiting the city of Norwich. Tucked away amongst the University of East Anglia complex, it can be seen as hard to find, but its well worth it. The building itself, designed by Norman Foster (also Stansted Airport) is visually attractive. The collection of world art and artifacts that Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury collected and then left to the education of all, students and public alike, is awe inspiring. Walking amongst Henry Moores, Jackson Polocks and Picasos work, side by side with a wooden head of a god from the Cook Islands and an ivory inlaid carving from Polynesia shows great art from the whole world. And the Anderson collection of Art Neuvo glass, furniture and jewellry, took me back again this year, And the cafe! Well you will just have to try it for yourself.
