CHOOSE ART Campaign raises over £200,000 to support artists and museums during the Covid-19 pandemic

The CHOOSE ART campaign will ensure that when museums across the UK reopen, they are able to reach out to their communities through new acquisitions, playing a vital role in civic healing and mental wellbeing as well as bringing new life to high streets.
