Object in Focus: free short-term loans from the Horniman Museum & Gardens

Object in Focus is a three year project funded by Arts Council England to proactively loan objects out to museums and non-museum venues. The aim is to increase access to stored collections, promote Smarter Loans and forge links with other museums and cultural organisations.

The free offer includes an object or themed objects in a showcase with lighting, transport, installation, interpretation written by the Horniman curators in liaison with you, a talk or event, publicity and general support throughout the loans process.

Objects span three collections: Natural History, Anthropology and Musical Instruments, and can be used to enhance your displays or as a stand-alone exhibition.

Please email Sarah Mahood, Collections Access Officer at the Horniman Museum & Gardens if you would like more information or call 0208 858 8232.
