The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK's first children's charity and first public art gallery. The Foundling Hospital, which continues today as the children's charity Coram, was established in 1739 by the philanthropist Thomas Coram to care for babies at risk of abandonment. Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision were the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel. Their creative generosity set the template for the ways in which the arts can support philanthropy. Through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events the Museum celebrates the ways in which artists of all disciplines have helped improve children's lives for over 275 years.

The Muse Gallery and Studio

The Muse Gallery and Studio

The Muse gallery was established by artists, to support emerging contemporaries by combining creative and commercial concepts under one roof. Subject to a successful application, we also offer exhibition space to more established artists at a nominal commission. With limited slots per year, we look to our panel of affiliated artists and esteemed professionals to elect shows and offer comprehensive appraisals to those proposals still in need of refinement. Throughout the year, we also open our doors to community arts projects, musicians, film makers and live performers to fill the calendar with events from 'Sound art’ to ‘Cult film’ evenings and associated seminars. Our residency program (only BA and MA graduates need apply) continues to offer a subsidised platform for candidates, with a group and solo show during their time with us. We work towards both public and private sector funding for our residents and visiting artists, with professional development working along side our team during visiting shows hosted throughout the year.
