Art and Poster Stores, London Transport Museum SOLD OUT
Guided Tour | London Transport Museum Acton
Tuesday 27 February 2018 - 11:30 until 13:00
The Art and Poster Stores contain an amazing collection of transport artworks and posters. Much of the original artwork is rarely seen by the public and our small group will be able to get close to the work in the Art Store. There are 7,000 commissioned posters in the Poster Store. The first graphic poster was commissioned over 100 years ago and London Transport went on to commission work from some of the world’s best known artists. Some of the posters are on display in the Museum in Covent Garden but many are kept in the Depot. The guided tour will be given private access to both stores.
This event has been organised by the Oxfordshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
