Reminder: British Advertising Awards @ Walker

Walker Art Center Presents the 2006 British Television Advertising Awards
The Popular Annual Screenings of Commercials from Across the Pond Return for Another Year

The 2006 British Television Advertising Awards program returns December 1–30 for another rousing run of screenings at the Walker Art Center, where last year more than 13,000 people saw the 2005 award-winning spots. Awards Administrator Peter Bigg will be on hand to introduce the opening-night screenings on Friday, December 1, at 7 and 9:30 pm. Remaining programs during the month include evening and matinee screenings.

Sure to sell out again this year, the annual British Television Advertising Awards has been delighting audiences in the Twin Cities for the past 20 years. Honoring the spry wit and ingenuity of the best British advertising, this new selection of original, daring, and hilarious commercials tours the U.S. with stops at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The Walker’s audiences will enjoy the local twist—the voice of A Prairie Home Companion’s Garrison Keillor for the Honda ads that have taken the top prize for three years running.
