Archive inspired U3A work unveiled

The Cambridge Assessment archives hosted a reception to unveil artwork produced by U3A (University of the Third Age) students, who utilised the archives for inspiration. Last year, working with art facilitator Lyndall Phelps and assisted by Group Archivist Gillian Cooke, the students explored text from past exam papers, which they used to develop their own text-based art at Anglia Ruskin University’s letterpress studio.

The project is part of the public art engagement for Triangle. “Reflecting on text continues to be relevant, even more so in this age of mass information,” commented Group Construction and Property Director Rob Smart at the event.
