For Meeting Point2 ten artists were selected by ten museums across the North to produce new artworks inspired by the museums and their collections.
Funded by Arts Council England’s Museum Resilience Fund, Meeting Point2 presented artworks in unexpected places, supporting small and medium scale museums to commission artists to create a piece of work in response to the venue.
Judith King, director at Arts&Heritage said: "Meeting Point addresses the fundamental question of why museums and the contemporary arts should work together.
"The potential benefits of placing new and exciting artworks in museum and heritage venues are huge, not only for the artists and the venues but for the museum visitors, who will encounter a new way of experiencing history and their collections."
The project aimed to bring new visitors to participating museums, and position the museums as exciting places to see contemporary art.

Brontë Parsonage Museum – Lynn Setterington
