Refurbishment of the Art Museum

UCL Art Museum has recently undergone a period of refurbishment works. With the support of a DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund Grant, we were be able to improve our multi-functional space for teaching, research and public engagement. At UCL Art Museum, we have been experimenting with the transformation of the traditional print room to a multi-use museum environment for some years. The award has enabled us to balance the competing demands of access and conservation while providing a unique visitor experience and educational environment. As part of the works, we improved our lighting and developed innovative display strategies allowing for greater access to our collection of prize-winning artworks from the Slade School of Fine Art, as well as our unique collection of plaster models by acclaimed neo-classical artist John Flaxman.
