Do you work in a museum in the SW of England and is your special interest art or decorative art? A new research fund available from Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery could help you pursue your passion. Bursaries of up to £1,000 are being offered to help individuals study a topic related to the art or decorative art collections held by Plymouth City Council.
The fund has been established through the generosity of the family of Maureen Attrill, who was curator of art at Plymouth for 33 years, until her sudden and untimely death in February 2011. Maureen contributed significantly to the development of the collections at Plymouth. Her eye for detail was considerable and was demonstrated in her ability and flair to hang complex exhibitions cohesively. She was modest, passionate about art and the Plymouth collections and is sadly missed by her colleagues.
Applications to the bursary must be submitted by 5pm on Monday 23 March 2015.
