‘The Source of Art is in the Life of a People.’ To celebrate our Art Fund Museum of the Year win, we asked poet Jude Yawson to respond to this quote, inlaid in the floor of the SLG’s Main Gallery since 1897.

Watch the resulting poem here, read by Jude and some of the SLG’s friends, reflecting on what these words mean to us over 100 years later.
