ART DEPARTMENT 2017-04-13T16:46:55+00:00

Artists in Residence

We have the opportunity for artists to rent a space at very low cost on in the 4th floor art department, to work in but also display their art, and make sales to the museum visitors. It’s a great chance to be exhibited in a Broadway High Street gallery, but also to get away from your regular studio, and to be inspired in peaceful and beautiful surroundings.
