Deserves to win!! 👏👏👏

We're delighted to be shortlisted for the Museums and Heritage Awards 2020 for our Rembrandt No Filter display which marked the 350th anniversary of the artist's death.

The display placed Rembrandt's celebrated 'Self-Portrait with Two Circles' alongside our visitors' selfies to explore the artist's own self-scrutiny against the filtered images of the 'selfie' age.

Did you get a chance to visit the display? Let us know in the comments!
