10 newly opened museums around the UK listed for the Art Fund Prize for Museums will be hosting free events as part of the Love your Museum Weekend (artfundprize.org.uk).
More than 100 unseen works from artists ranging from Super Furry Animals illustrator Pete Fowler to Flanimals illustrator Rob Steen will be on display at the Monsters Inked exhibition in London, which opens on Wednesday. An interactive monsters' den is also planned for children over the Easter weekend (ideageneration.co.uk). Also on Wednesday, the summer season gets underway in Copenhagen when the Tivoli gardens open. Events for this summer will include a new ride, concerts and a royal pantomime (tivoli.dk). East goes west when contemporary sculptures from China land in the Millennium Park in Chicago on Thursday. The four large-scale sculptures by leading artists will stay in the park until autumn 2010 (millenniumpark.org).
