Loo-vre Revamped

The Loo-vre has been revamped at Tenby Museum!

A couple of years ago it was decided to make the public lavatory space in the museum into a gallery space (as well as retaining its other function!).  Working with St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Canton, Cardiff, the area became the artiest toilet in the country!  The original work was based around Canton and Welsh castles.  The new work has  wider variation – there are pictures based around nature projects (including some fab pics of hedgehogs using dried leaves); picture frames and works based on the paintings of Dorian Spencer Davies and Gwen John (whose work can be seen in the museum’s other art gallery!!)

It is a brilliant project and the work by the children is truly amazing.  If you do come to the museum (and there are no reasons not to) then do make sure that you call in to see the smallest room – it is fabulous!
