Impact and engagement

The Hercules Project has worked with Leeds City Museum and other venues on an international touring exhibition (2015-16) based on the work of contemporary New Zealand printmaker Marian Maguire.  In each venue, the prints were exhibited alongside artefacts chosen from the local collection: Leeds City Museum, for example, was able to draw on its New Worlds collection for Maori items, as well as some Herakles-related Greek and Roman artefacts, in thought-provoking juxtapositions.
