For the Love of Russell-Cotes LGBT Exhibition

50th Anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality.  To mark this important act, Russell-Cotes is launching an exciting new project working with the LGBT community.  This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and explores the hidden treasures in Russell-Cotes’ collection. Members of the LGBT community will work alongside the museum curators.  They will consider some of the thousands of art works at the gallery, taking inspiration from its founders Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes’ passion for collecting.  The chosen pieces will form a major exhibition next year, taking place from May to October 2017.

Russell-Cotes – In Partnership with Bournefree

Russell-Cotes is working in partnership with Bournefree to raise awareness of LGBT history and issues.  Through the exhibition and associated events they are also hoping to reach a new audience. Dorset Mind is attending the project launch tonight (Thursday 20th October) at 18:30.   For more information, see the Russell-Cotes website here. All are welcome – come along to see how you can get involved.]]>
