Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery

‘In the Evenings Mr Hart would look at his coins…’ An exhibition case I curated for semi-permanent display at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery, 2018.

Since August 2015 I have worked with Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery to examine their coin collection, advise on sustainable storage and develop plans for cataloguing and exhibiting material.  I have also contributed to grant proposals on the qualities of the numismatic collection, which have so far enabled major structural work and expansion of study space. I have facilitated access to the collection by students from Birkbeck and the University of Saskatchewan, resulting in joint publication of an article on the numismatic collection of R. E. Hart with a member of the study group from the University of Saskatchewan, Jack Hase.
