Muse: Makers in Museums – Group Exhibition at the Museum of Somerset


New work from eight artists inspired by the unique objects and stories found in community-led museums is going on display at The Museum of Somerset in Taunton.

Since May the artists have been working with small volunteer-run museums in Somerset and Devon as part of the ‘MUSE: Makers in Museums’ project. Through their creative re-interpretations the artists have brought historic artefacts into the modern day.
