Grace Darling Museum commissioned Sophie Dixon in Spring 2019 as part of the Meeting Point programme.

Sophie has since been visiting and researching the museum’s collection to produce a Virtual Reality artwork, which will open in Autumn 2020.

Sophie Dixon said:

“I’m delighted to have been selected to work with the Grace Darling museum. This is an amazing opportunity to work closely with their collection and dedicated team to realise this very exciting project.”
