The winning touring exhibition, Eye for Colour

Last week our exceptionally successful exhibition, ‘Eye for Colour’, won in the ‘Temporary or Touring Exhibition’ category at the annual Museums & Heritage Awards for Excellence. The awards recognise and celebrate best practice in the industry, so to win is a real pat on the back.

Head of exhibitions, Fiona Philpott, was thrilled to receive the award, especially as the exhibition was developed and designed in-house by our own team. In her acceptance speech she thanked the eTEC consortium as this award is very much a tribute to the success of this unique consortium (National Museums Liverpool, At-Bristol, W5, Magna and Science Projects) and thanked the Millennium Commission who gave us a very substantial grant towards the cost of the exhibition.

More on the awards and all the categories and winners on the Museums & Heritage website, and more on ‘Eye for Colour’ on our main site.

If you missed ‘Eye for Colour’ at World Museum Liverpool you can catch it now at W5 in Belfast. The good news is that it will return to World Museum Liverpool later this year (Oct 07 – Feb 08), before it travels to Magna in Rotherham. It is also available for hire (contact our exhibitions dept.).

And while I’m on the subject of awards, ‘Big Art for Little Artists’ is nominated in the ‘Large Visitor Attraction’ category of The Mersey Partnership 2007 Tourism Awards. Lynn Taylor from the Lady Lever is also short-listed in the ‘Outstanding Customer Service’ category. Fingers crossed for the ceremony on 1 June.
