Museum of the Year Finalist


BALTIC and BALTIC 39 have been selected as one of 10 finalists for The Art Fund Prize, Museum of the Year 2013. The prize celebrates museums and galleries across the UK - annually awarding one outstanding winner £100,000. The announcement was made live on BBC Radio 4 Front Row by Mark Lawson on 2 April. The judging panel this year chaired by Art Fund Director Stephen Deuchar, includes the Daily Telegraph’s Arts Editor Sarah Crompton, writer and broadcaster Bettany Hughes, historian Tristram Hunt MP and artist Bob and Roberta Smith.

The winner of the prize will be announced on 4 June at a ceremony in London broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 Front Row.

Godfrey Worsdale, BALTIC's Director, commented: "I am thrilled that BALTIC has been included as one of this year's finalists. As a still young institution, BALTIC is continuing to engage new audiences in its programmes of international contemporary art through innovative practices and partnerships and to have that work recognised in this way is tremendous".
