Thrift Radiates Happiness is the first contemporary arts exhibition to be held at the Municipal Bank in central Birmingham. Taking place from 14-17 March 2013 the former Grade II listed Municipal Bank on Broad Street will showcase a range drawings, images, sound and light, video and music from local, national and international artists.
The title of the exhibition has been taken from an inscription found carved across a main beam within the building. All the art projects featured will appropriately focus on finance and investment.
The showcase event is the result of an arts and business collaboration between Birmingham based gallery TROVE, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the Birmingham Architectural Association (BAA), Birmingham City Council and global architect practice Aedas.
The opening will take place tonight from 5-8pm.
