Whose art is it anyway? 

Wales's national art collection belongs to everyone, but in the past, only a few had the power to decide what's collected and how it's presented. 

Is this fair? Who gets to choose what we see? 

The curators at Amgueddfa Cymru selected 100 artworks from our collections that we shared on Instagram, encouraging followers to like, comment, and share their favourites. 

Valuable lessons were learned and surprisingly, some works we thought would be popular didn't resonate online as much as contemporary pieces.

From the responses, we compiled a shortlist of the most popular artworks, now on display in this gallery. 

Before they were shown here, these artworks were shown at Y Gaer in Brecon, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, and Oriel Môn.

Art 100 Celf – Celf ar y Cyd

Art 100 Celf grew out of four projects called Celf ar y Cyd, which was developed to share the arts across Wales 

The new Celf ar y Cyd website is a core feature of the Welsh Government-funded National Contemporary Art Gallery for Wales. Homepage | Celf ar y Cyd

This remarkable initiative grants digital and physical access to the nation's collections throughout Wales.
