Telling Wiltshire’s Story: 30 Years of Support from Art Fund
12 May – 24 June 2018
A collection of treasures acquired with Art Fund support tells Wiltshire’s historic story in this special exhibition.
Home to one of the most significant Bronze Age archaeology collections in Britain, the Wiltshire Museum hosts an exhibition of treasures purchased over the last 30 years with support from Art Fund.
Comprising an eclectic mix of objects that feature Wiltshire and the surrounding landscape, the exhibition includes a Roman coin hoard discovered by a 14-year-old schoolboy in 2000, a set of 19th-century Druid medals and a stained glass window designed by John Piper.
Works include lithographs from the Stonehenge Suite by Henry Moore, Apollo Pythion by Pop artist Joe Tilson and works by artists David Inshaw, Robin Tanner and Anthony Vandyke Copley-Fielding – all of which, true to the exhibition’s title, tell Wiltshire’s story.
