Cool it Art Patron

We are excited to announce Cool it Art now has a Patron; Sue Grayson Ford!

Sue Grayson Ford MBE has enjoyed a 40 year career in arts administration since founding and directing the Serpentine Gallery as a platform for emerging artists. Later, she expanded the programme with exhibitions of international artists such as Giacometti, Saul Steinberg, De Kooning and Henry Moore. She has been Sculpture Director for the Liverpool International Garden Festival, Exhibitions Director at Manchester’s Cornerhouse, Director of Wakefield’s Centenary Festival and of London’s Photographers’ Gallery. Sue initiated the Campaign for Drawing, and ensured that it’s flagship, The Big Draw, grew into an international phenomenon with over 1000 events annually across the UK and 20 other countries. 

“Cool it Art played a valuable role in this project and that’s one reason I have become a Patron.More importantly I recognise the brilliant work which Amanda Callis and Cool it Art do by providing vital opportunities for creative play and hands-on activities at a time when such opportunities are in short supply.”
