Anna - you'll appreciate this. Last year, a Turner on a bus stop as part of this in my area of Swansea. Woman and a man at bus stop talking about this. The comment was: 'Look at them in London, flaunting to us what they've got. Do they not think we have culture in Wales?' I did laugh (inwardly).

Oh no. That's so sad. There's no pleasing some people. I think it's a great idea and any excuse to get art out beyond the rarified galleries is OK in my books.
