Wedgwood Museum

By Mike Rawlins

There are just about two days left for you to submit your vote for the Barlaston based Wedgwood Museum in the Art Fund Prize, the winning museum will get £100,000 in prize money.

The four finalists are:

  1. The Centre of New Enlightenment at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow
  2. Orleans House Gallery, Twickenham
  3. Ruthin Craft Centre, Denbighshire, Wales
  4. Wedgwood Museum, Stoke-on-Trent

The Art Fund Prize judging panel consists of 7 members, with the public vote being counted as the eighth vote when the judging panel sit down in London 18th June.  So far Wedgwood is leading the public votes.

You can vote for the Wedgwood Museum by visiting the Guardian Art and Design site


Following on from the post by The Oracle below I thought I would make it a little more democratic and create a poll listing all the councillors in the fair City of Stoke on Trent, just to make sure we don’t miss any of them, we don’t want them getting upset this close to Christmas do we?

I have turned the comments off on the poll but please feel free to add your comments to the original post.   The poll will close around New Years eve, so we can announce (or should that be denounce) the winners on New Years day, all that remains now is for the returning officer of pits ‘n’ pots to declare the vote open.

As Tony is probably in the pub, I’ll do it.

I declare this poll open, go vote me do…
