We are looking at options for increasing public access to the Government Art Collection (GAC). Around two-thirds of the collection's holdings of over 14,000 works of art are already on display in more than 370 buildings at home and abroad promoting the UK and its art. For example, an exhibition from the Collection will be held in Hull during its tenure as the UK City of Culture.
