The Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art

29 September 2016

Durham University and Auckland Castle Trust have entered into a new partnership to create The Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art in Bishop Auckland.

The £1.6m centre, which is being supported with a significant donation from Santander, will link academic research by Durham University to the curatorial programme at Auckland Castle’s Spanish Gallery.

It is hoped that it will also make a significant contribution to the region’s economy by attracting tourists and visiting scholars from around the world.

A formal partnership agreement was signed during a special event at Auckland Castle on September 29. Full details are available here.
