Art Fund Prize Special Event: Reception at the Museum of Reading

The Museum of Reading’s outstanding Outside the Box loan service is one of 10 museum and gallery projects competing for this year’s 100,000 Art Fund Prize for museums and galleries within the UK. To celebrate their achievement and long list nomination for this award, local Art Fund members and their friends are invited to an exclusive evening reception at the museum where wine and canaps will be served.

This is a unique opportunity to take a look behind the scenes in the company of senior members of the museum staff.

Explore areas not normally open to the public
See the wide variety of Art Fund assisted acquisitions
Handle interesting and unusual objects from the loan collection

The evening will conclude with a privileged preview of an Art Fund endowed Box, which, when complete, will join the remaining 1,500 plus boxes in this truly inspiring and imaginative service to the community.
