Come and enjoy the Bank Holidays at the RWA.

Bring along all the family, or visit with friends and enjoy taking photos of yourselves in the large colourful frames on the forecourt - there's even one for the dog!  

Get the beautifully revamped RWA building in the background, and post your pictures on social media, tagging the RWA (social channels linked at the bottom of this page).

Selfie sticks, poses and quirky angles for your photographs on the forecourt - whatever works for you. Then come on inside to see the exhibitions exploring self portraiture.  

Explore the lives and works of artists in RWA's landmark reopening exhibition, Me, Myself, I: Artists' Self-Portraits, see work by local creatives in Portraits in Print and We, Ourselves, Us and RWA Academicians' artwork on display in This Is Me.
