MK in Perspective

A large number of drawings by renowned artist Helmut Jacoby, which the Milton Keynes Development Corporation commissioned to raise international interest in the new city, are on display in the centre:mk. This is the first time that many of these artworks have been seen together. The exhibition, along the Midsummer Arcade side of the former BHS store, is only temporary so do be sure to look out for them on your next shopping trip. Although some of these places, such as the huge public pool in CMK, remain a dream, many others are now part of daily life. Together the illustrations give a lively sense of the original vision behind modern Milton Keynes.
