Okay, so the usual 'stuff' of this blog (conference alerts, CFPs etc) are a bit thin on the ground at the moment, so here's a quick round-up of some museum related news items and articles that have caught my eye recently.

First up, the British Museum's new advertising campaign.

Next, an exhibition at the Kremlin that includes, amongst assorted 'stuff' presented to Soviet leaders, some innovative portraits of Lenin using unlikely media.

Finally, Bury Council flogging a Lowry and in the process upsetting, amongst others, the Museums Association (though this article doesn't cover that angle). I heard the leader of the Council, I think, on the radio the other day complaining about the Museums Associations' 'southern' attitude and implying that, 'up north', people have no time (both literally and figuratively) for art. :S
