We would like to say another huge thank you to everyone that has donated and shared our message. We are now at the half-way point – four weeks in and 61 donors have helped us get to 34% funded!
We are really excited to be even closer to making Mark’s exhibition a possibility. This week we visited him in his studio to see his work in progress and had a chance to see his plans for the exhibition, as well as some more of his work up close.
Mark has been visiting the Horniman and our stores for inspiration for many years. He starts by photographing the specimens from many different angles and distances before coming back to the studio, compiling the images digitally, and then spending months painstakingly painting every hair.
Supporters of our project have the chance to visit Mark in his studio and join him on an exclusive tour of our collection store to learn more about his inspiration and process.
We now only have 27 days left to raise the money. Please continue to help by donating and sharing our campaign so that we can allow everyone to see Mark’s captivating paintings in the flesh. For more images of Mark’s studio, head over to the Horniman’s Twitter, @HornimanMuseum.
