An overview of the collection and its importance.
What is the CNAA?
The Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA) was the largest single degree-awarding body in the United Kingdom. There were over 140 institutions offering first degrees and postgraduate level courses approved by the CNAA.
The CNAA collection: history and context
The collection was created to celebrate the history and achievements of Britain's art schools. The collection is made up of 53 works by 25 international (mainly British) artists who worked in the UK and taught in its art schools.
