MAA Shortlisted for Art Fund “Museum of the Year” Award

Ten museums and galleries have been chosen to compete for the £100,000 Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year and the £10,000 Clore Award for Learning. You may have heard on Radio 4’s Front Row programme last night rhp’s Museum of Arch and Anth is one of them.

Our competitors include the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, the Dulwich Picture Gallery and the Horniman Museum and Art Gallery, both in London, and the Hepworth Museum, Wakefield.

Celebrating the very best UK museums and galleries, the Prize highlights the innovative and creative ways that museums bring objects and collections to life, looking specifically at activity undertaken in 2012. As well as the £100,000 prize for Museum of the Year, one of the ten finalist museums will receive £10,000 for the Clore Award for Learning, which recognises achievements in learning programmes for children and young people. From now until the end of May judges will travel the UK to see the ten museums, revealing the winners on the 4 June.
