Adopt a Watts

'We are delighted to have become philanthropists in a small way and, in doing so, to help assure the future of the collection.'

- Alan Midgley & Jan Chapman

Adopt a drawing, painting, sculpture or artefact and support the long-term care of our collection. Adoptions can mark the celebration of a wedding anniversary or birthday, the memory of a loved one or simply because you have a connection with a particular piece.
