New Collecting Cultures acquisitions
In 2008, the Heritage Lottery Fund launched a funding programme to assist museums in acquiring new objects to develop their collections in particular subject areas.
The Garden Museum was one of twenty-one museums to receive a grant under this ‘Collecting Cultures’ scheme. The grant was to enable the Museum to develop its collection of art and design.
The Museum received just over £60,000 to spend on new acquisitions. This programme, which ended in 2014, has allowed the Garden Museum to acquire over one hundred works for its collection.
Highlights of some of the collection are included below.
